This afternoon, 3R put on a fantastic assembly for Blakehill all about the Stone Age! Over the term, they have been working very hard and have found out lots of interesting facts about the past and the ways the people from the Prehistoric Ages (Atone Age, Iron Age and Bronze Age) lived and what they did. The children used iPads to research more information and read a book called Stone Age Boy to give them some more ideas too!
As well as researching, 3R got creative and did some role playing about what life would be like to be a prehistoric person. Not only that, but they decided to do some cave art that was similar to the ones the stone age people made. They did some brilliant drawing of animals like the sabre-tooth tiger, the lion and boars. Doing this, they used watercolour and charcoal just like the past prehistoric age and they turned out amazing.
For the assembly, they learnt a song that was called Stone and the children recorded it with their own words which turned out to be quite tricky! Also, they made sabre-tooth necklaces, using clay to shape the teeth and bones, then painting them to look realistic! They turned out really well and are a great example of jewellery from the past.
This term, they have put in so much effort and hard work leading up to this afternoons assembly! Mrs Rashid quoted, “We were so nervous all week but have pulled it off brilliantly this afternoon! I am so proud and will miss them next year!”
All in all, they performed an amazing assembly and worked really hard to make sure it was perfected. Well done 3R!
