We are poets...and we do know it!

In English we have been looking at poetry and performing our own poems. We enjoyed acting out our poems using the success criteria of pace, volume, body position, actions expression and sound effects.

Stone Age Pinch Pots

We worked carefully to create our own clay Stone Age pots. We used the pinching method with the clay and painted them in typical Stone Age colours.

Cave Art!

We worked together to create amazing cave art. To make our art work 'authentic' we even went under the tables to experience what cave painting would really be like!

Cave Art - our final versions!
