Worker of the Week
This week Ollie is our Worker of the Week for listening well to advice and showing great determination to succeed.
WELL DONE OLLIE!
Over the past few weeks we have been very busy finding out about the Stone Age. As part part of our topic, we have discovered how our distant ancestors lived, learnt how to make a fire and found out about some amazing Stone Age inventions.
On Thursday 11th October we went on a trip to Cheddar Caves. During the day we walked up to the top of Jacob's Ladder and meet some friendly goats. We visited the museum and looked at lots of interesting artefacts. We meet Stone Age Andy who shared his knowledge of the Stone Age. Andy told us about the animals our Stone Age ancestors ate, the types of tools they used and how they made the discovery of fire. Well done Phoebe for explaining that it was probably due to a lightening strike that fire was first discovered.
Exploring Gough's Cave, was fascinating. We found out that Cheddar Man, who is Britain's oldest complete skeleton, was discovered buried inside the cave. As we travelled further underground, we saw stalagmites and stalactites and other strange rock formations. There was even one that looked like a frozen river.
Many thanks to Mrs Lovell, Mrs O'Connor, Mrs Moir and Mrs Sampson who gave up their time to come and help us.
In English we have been studying the book, 'Stone Age, Bone Age' and we are now currently working on 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth'. We have written a Stone Age story and we having been using adjectives and a variety of sentence types to make our written work more interesting. Over the next week we will be learning to write instructions.
During our maths sessions we have been learning about place value and rounding up or down to the nearest 10 or 100.
