Heron class entertained the whole school with their dress rehearsal. “Off with her head!” Come and watch the performances this Thursday 1pm and 5pm.
Grebes and Herons learned three skills from the Neolithic (Late Stone Age) and early Bronze Age:
1. Throwing spears using the atl-atl – an arm-extending tool which gives enough whip and distance to bring down a mammoth!
2. Making and testing bows made from willow.
3. Making jewellery from hollowed-out elder sticks.
Great teamwork between the two classes!
On 5/6/19 Grebes created a clay model of Stonehenge and learned about this important historical site. But what is Stonehenge?
Eoin: “People just literally dragged the stones there!”
Maci: “It’s a kind of clock or calendar.”
Vinnie: “It’s a place of religious worship.”
Alex: “It’s like a temple where people prayed to the Sun.”
Kade: “Maybe the stones are in a circle to represent the Sun…?”
Great work from Next-Year’s-Grebes this morning, working as a team to solve puzzles like these ones, and sharing songs together on ukulele. (By the way, the consensus was that the monkey left the line because it disliked even numbers.)
They have recreated their own ‘Squares with concentric circles’.
