Stones and Bones- Autumn 1

Celtic Harmony- Tuesday 5th October 2021

We had an amazing time at Celtic Harmony. We went on lost of Stone Age themed adventures such us, food gathering, mammoth hunting and den building. We were able to find out how Stone Age people lived and survived and how difficult life must have been for them.

BIG BANG:

Our Learning Journey this half term is Stones and Bones. We had an amazing time creating  our own cave paintings using different materials. The cave paintings were full of detail and colour. We drew images that represented our lives and things we love. We used charcoal, paints and oil pastels. Messy but fun! Have a look at some of the amazing work below!
