Today we were learning about the Stone Age as part of our history topic about St Albans.
We looked at cave paintings from though sands of years ago. The children we fascinated by the hands that have left their stamp in time. Which has inspired a lot of the painting from today.
Archie painted a sabre tooth tiger that his tribe had hunted, making sure to include its super sharp teeth. Sophie left her hand print so that in thousands of years time she will still be remembered.
We also made some natural paints using mud, charcoal, leaves and petals to get different colours. Firstly we cut up the leaves to break it into smaller pieces using a cutting stone. Secondly we grinded the leaves up to let the green out used a rough stone. Then we mushed it up in some water. Finally used a stick to write our names.
