Autumn Term 1

In Herons class this term we have been very busy learning all about the Stone Age.

As part of our literacy learning we have also been looking at instructions, so we read and followed a set of instructions on how to make a Stone Age necklace. We carefully manipulated the clay to make our beads, then we threaded our beads, painted them and then finally had a go at modelling and wearing our jewellery. We hope you agree that we think they look fabulous!

As part of our computing learning we were looking at instructions and how to break these down into parts which is called decomposition. We spent some time outside creating and performing our own little dance sequences. We had lost of fun doing this! We then had to write out our set of instructions clearly labelling each part of our sequence. For example, clap 2 times, hop 2 times.

In our Art learning we examined the image of the artefact ‘Lion man’ which was found in a cave over 30000 years ago. We learnt how to join pieces of clay together and how to use tools to achieve the effects we wanted. The children worked very hard to make their own model of the Lion man.

 In science the children have been learning about different types of rocks and had lots of fun carrying out an experiment where they investigated the features of different rocks. They explored how durable they were by seeing if they would mark or scratch, they explored the density by checking to see if they floated or sank and they explored to see if the rocks were permeable or impermeable by using a pipette to drop droplets of water on to them. Good investigating skills, herons!
