In History, the children are learning about the Stone Age. This week, they have investigated how we find out about times that have happened in the past and how the people who lived during those times used to pass on their history in different ways.
The Stone Age people would paint and draw pictures of the walls of caves to pass on their history and how they used to live. The paintings that have been discovered would tell a story about their lives and used a way to communicate with other people living in those times.
The children enjoyed looking at lots of different images and discussing what they saw, liked and what they may have used to paint and draw. We turned our classroom into a cave to design our own paintings using a variety of different paints, chalks and crayons.
Have a look at our cave paintings and see if you can read the story we are telling!
