Year 3 started their new school year with an amazing stone age themed day. All the children came in wearing costumes and were excited to learn about their new topic. The day began with the children investigating a range of images of the stone age and generating some statements and questions about this period. In maths, we looked at early counting systems and then in groups we made our own counting system using different symbols to represent numbers. The afternoon was focused on art and making stone age bone necklaces from salt dough, moulded to look like bones or teeth of stone age animals. All the children thoroughly enjoyed designing and wearing their necklaces. Following this, the children took part in flint knapping using soap to make their own arrow or axe head, which we then attached to sticks that they found on the school grounds.
