This week, the children enjoyed planning and creating their own monuments. They worked as a team and also created their own information guides about their monuments.
Today, we have been learning all about Stone Age hill forts. We first researched on Chrome books, then created information posters all about what we found out!
In outdoor learning, Miss Gallaway showed us some fun games to play. We also created our own dens. We developed our knot skills, creativity, solved problems and enjoyed collaborating.
Stone Age Tools!
We have had a fantastic week making Stone Age tools! First we explored different rocks, then designed our tool, collected resources and worked together to make our own tools! It was so much fun to test if they worked!

Tribal Tales Afternoon!
To start our amazing topic learning, the children enjoyed our first outdoor learning. We lit the fire and shared Stone Age stories. The children also took it in turns in small groups to light their own fires using fire strikers. 😁
Google Classroom and Internet Safety!
This week, the children have been introduced to Google Classroom. We will be using this tool in class and possibly use this for future homework. When accessing Google Classroom at home, it’s important to ask parents permission. We have talked about being safe online and I hope this can be reinforced at home.
We have also attached a step by step guide to log onto our class Google classroom!
Optional Summer Project
Next term, we are learning all about prehistoric history (Stone Age to Bronze Age). We would love you to research and find out information about this period in history. Consider:
It would be fantastic if you could present your research to share with your class in September (present however you like).
Have a fantastic summer, we cannot wait to see you in September
