Year 3 enjoyed a wonderfully arty afternoon yesterday when, as part of their Dimensions topic on the Stone Age, they learnt about cave paintings.
They learnt that in the Stone Age, the people did not write and so drew pictures to communicate ideas and stories. They then each drew their own cave painting on the cave walls (overturned tables!).
Their designs were brilliant. Some drew hunter-gatherers hunting for animals to eat, some drew them cooking on the fire, and some drew them celebrating and spending time together.
All of the children had a lot of fun showing off their knowledge of the Stone Age, as well as their artistic skills. They also learned just how tricky it would have been to draw at that angle!
