Stone Age Weapons

We have been making our own Stone Age weapons this week! We made sticks and stones out of paper mache, painted them then attached them together using techniques that people during the Stone Age used! We've had so much fun making them and even more fun pretending we are Homo Sapiens hunting animals in the Stone Age!

Fabric Leaf Hammering Fun!

This half term, we have been learning about tools that people during the Stone Age used. The clue is in the name...they used stones! We know from evidence from archaeological research that they used stones as hammers so we used our own hammerstones to create leaf hammerings on fabric. We spent time in the nature garden choosing leaves to hammer and even experimented with some flowers!

Stone Age Day

On Wednesday 3rd May, Year 3 had a very special visitor! Dr Henry Jones (Portals to the Past), an amazing archaeologist, came in and talked to us about the Stone Age! He taught us all about how people lived in The Stone Age, what they ate and how they were able to survive. We built our own Stone Henge, looked at some objects and artefacts and took part in a very exciting quiz! What an amazing day we had!

Cave Painting!

This half term, Year 3 are learning about The Stone Age! We have been learning about cave paintings and where they have been found. We learned about different prehistoric animals and their names and then had a go at creating our own cave paintings of the animals we learned about. We used out fingers to paint and we only used colours that people The Stone Age had access to, by using natural minerals.

Abbey House Museum

On Friday 31st March, Year 3 visited Abbey House Museum as part of our work about Victorians. Lots of the children dressed up as Victorian children and we had an amazing time learning about how Victorians lived in Leeds!

World Book Day 2023

What a fantastic World Book Day! Here are some of our awesome costumes.

Victorian School Hook

This half term we are learning about Victorians. On Tuesday, we went to get our Writing books and they had disappeared! Instead there was a letter saying that Mrs Davis had been transformed into a Victorian school teacher and we were going to do Victorian school lessons! Instead of our books, we had to use a board and chalk. We had to practise our handwriting and numbers. We also had to stand up to show respect to Mrs Pettman and Mr Dunderdale when they came to visit us. At the end of the lesson, we were very glad we could go back to normal lessons. Victorian school sounds hard!
