Hawk class learning
This term we have been immersing ourselves into our theme ‘Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age’. As well as exciting lessons such as creating our own Stone Henge, cooking a delicious fruit stew, and writing our own stories and poems based on Stone Age texts, Hawk class have created their own Stone Age village on the playground. They used materials from around the field and playground to build a tipi and painted their own cave paintings. The children took the photos to showcase their learning.
Our science learning continues into this half term, Rocks, Fossils and Soils. We have learned about grouping rocks according to different properties and how erosion works, as well as searching the school grounds for types of soil. We have also learned about different enquiry types and which types of enquiries to use for each lesson.
In D&T, Hawk class were focussing on structures and nets. They created their own castles with Mrs Price, planning and designing nets, and used these alongside junk modelling to make their final products.
We had an exciting trip to Celtic Harmony camp on the first day back. The children had a fantastic time immersing themselves in all things prehistory. They got to practise flint-knapping, made their own flour and dough, created their own clay coil pots and listened to a spiritual fairy story inside a roundhouse.
