RE - celebrating Rosh Hashanah
Art 
In art we made our own handprint stencil to create some Stone Age cave art.  To try and experience what it might have been like for cavemen painting on a cave wall, we scrumpled up the painting paper so that the texture felt rough and turned the tables on their sides. It was great fun!
English
In English we imagined that we were the characters from our class text Stone Age Boy when they met for the first time. We thought about how you could communicate with someone if you couldn't speak the same language. We chose a feelings card without showing our partner, then used our facial expressions and bodies to show that emotion. Can you guess how we were feeling?
DT
In DT we designed our own Stone Age tool. We carefully placed the wood in the vice and then used the hacksaw to cut the wood. We then attched the rest of the design. Afterwards we went outside to test our Stone Age tool.
