Cave Paintings

September 22nd, 2018

The Hawks took inspiration from cave paintings to develop their own designs. They collected¬†information, sketches and resources, adapted and refined ideas and explored their own ideas using charcoal, chalk and pastels. Rupert’s mum came into class with powdered rocks which the Hawks used to make paint in a colour palette that would have been available in the Stone Age.

Greystones Farm

September 12th, 2018

The Hawks began their topic of Stone Age to Iron Age by visiting a replica Iron Age round house in Bourton-on-the-Water. Everyone had a fantastic time learning lots of Iron Age skills such as lighting fires, making a wattle and daub wall, and cooking bread. Also, they learnt about how archaeologists discovered the settlement on the farm and how they were helped by badgers!  It was a great trip and everyone returned to school enthusiastic to learn more about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age with some great questions to try and answer. A full gallery of pictures is on the school website.

The whole school enjoyed being active and taking part in the sponsored walk to raise money for FOAS. We managed to dodge the showers and walk around the beautiful surroundings of Avening. There was plenty of mud and puddles which just made the walk even more enjoyable! Well done everyone!
