Linking our Computing and Topic learning by creating Stone Age mazes using 2DIY 3D. We had fun making and working through each other’s Stone Age mazes.
The children enjoyed role playing the characters and events from the story, Stone Age Boy. This helped embed the language and order of the story for them to then write a retell and their own story in the style of Stone Age
We’ve been doing lots of Maths learning involving division and multiplication. Trying out different methods.
We’ve been getting confident with division and a number line. Learning about capacity was fun, if not a little wet! Not to worry, we found ways around it.
Stone Age Art
While studying Stone Age Cave paintings, children learned how symbols can be used as a means of communication. They then used this idea when creating their own ‘Cave paintings’ for people to learn about them in the distant future.
In our Topic Learning about the Stone Age, children role played what trading might have been like. They quickly learned what a fair trade was. A rather quicker trade was made and both parties shook on it!
Stone Age Homes
Children designed, created and evaluated Stone Age houses during D.T. They learned valuable lessons on only using available natural materials while gaining an appreciation of the difficulties faced by Stone Age people.
