Primitive Skills Day Autumn 2021
As part of our Stone Age topic, we have had a very exciting day learning about primitive skills with Richard Irving. 
1. At the beginning of the day, Richard told the children a story about a rainbow and then the children explored the woodland, matching colours to their 'pieces of rainbow'. At the end of the story, a rainbow appeared in the sky!
4. Later, the children stripped and cut willow branches ready for them to be put on the fire and turned into charcoal.
6. Later, the children created their own woodland creatures using clay and sticks. After that, they twisted dough around sticks and cooked their own bread over the fire.
Keeping Safe Online
 
Numerous children across the school are regularly using social media inappropriately. Please visit https://www.net-aware.org.uk/ for guidelines to age appropriateness of most sites. Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and Youtube all have age limits of 13 to be able to sign up. If your child is signing up for this without your permission they are breaking the site’s rules. Any unsupervised use of Youtube in particular is greatly discouraged – we consider the quantity of inappropriate content that children have access to through this website to be grossly unsuitable. We advise using the ‘Youtube Kids’ app or only using Youtube in family rooms/with supervision. Please monitor and vet your children’s devices – you are helping to safeguard your child’s wellbeing by doing so, it is not an invasion of their privacy.

2. The children then created their own magic potions using natural objects found in the woodland. They all smelt very different! At the end, they were allowed to throw their potions in the air!
3. After break, the children learned how to make fire. 
5. In the afternoon, we used the charcoal that we had made to draw pictures and we also enjoyed (well some of us did) a cup of mint tea!
