The Roses Class had a fantastic afternoon on Tuesday 5th October when we were visited ( by Teams because of Covid restrictions) by world renowned archaeologist Professor George Nash.
Professor Nash told us all about his work discovering ancient rock art. He took us on a whistle- stop tour of the changes throughout the Stone Age to the Iron Age through some of his incredible archaeological finds. He showed us photographs of some of the incredible Stone Age sites and monuments in Shropshire and Wales, including the exciting discovery below:
'Recently discovered by archaeologist Dr. George Nash, a wall carving on the Gower Peninsula in South Wales may prove to be one of Britain's oldest examples of rock art. The carving of a speared reindeer is believed to have been created by a hunter-gatherer in the Ice Age more than 14,000 years ago.'
The children had many questions for Professor Nash and he was very impressed by the Cave art museum exhibits they had created and their knowledge of the period : )
This week in our PSHE lesson we talked about the sort of friendship issues we can face in school and how best we could deal with them. We looked at some scenarios and decided what we would do if that happened to us. We discussed what we though bullying was and used this picture to discuss which of these scenarios was bullying. What do you think ?
We discussed the importance of rules and came up with our own Roses Class Rules to help us be Courageous, Compassionate. We have all signed to show we agree with our class rules. : )
In our MoE drama we have been working as a team of archaeologists who have discovered an cave with amazing Stone Age cave paintings and other Stone Age artefacts. We have been commissioned by the National History Museum to create a museum exhibit about life in the Stone Age to Iron Age.
We have researched the role of an archaeologist in finding out about the past, and begun to find out about the key events and periods of the Stone Age to Iron Age
We have been having fun using sock puppets learning to meet and greet people in French. We have visited the key Paris landmarks with our puppets and learned a French rhyme . Bravo Roses! Tres bien!!
