In Darfield 3, we have had an exciting start to the New Year. We have been learning about prehistoric Britain. We have learnt about what they ate, how they made tools, where they lived and all about their daily lives. To help us learn we made stone-age axes, cave paintings and some of us even made Stonehenge out of biscuits!
In science, we have been learning about different rocks and identifying them and investigated their strength using a scratch test. To help us learn about how rocks are made we made chocolate rocks – which we all loved!
In our writing lessons, we have been reading an adventure story and have written our own character descriptions and we are looking forward to writing our own adventure story.
In maths, we have been using our number knowledge to find number bonds to 10, 20 and 100. We have also learnt a new method to add and subtract.
The best day so far was when we went to Herd Farm to learn about prehistoric Britain. We made Stone Age shelters, we went inside some bronze age round houses, we got our faces painted, got dressed up for a battle, practised throwing spears and then we acted out hunting for deer. At the end of the day we all huddled around a fire and held lots of different artefacts and tools.
