Before half term, Chestnut and Hazel were joined by the brilliant Andrew Skelton from Chippenham Museum and Heritage centre.
We began the day handling artefacts, thinking like historians and trying to work out what era of pre-history they came from.
After that, we finished the first session with weaving - just how they used to make their houses!
Fossils was our science topic in term 5, a really good link to the Stone Age and our over-arching topic, Similarities and Differences. The children used tools to do a sandbox dig and then they sorted the things they had found. Following that, Mr Skelton explained how things get buried and fossilised over many, many years using a 'blanket dig'.
Before half term, Hazel and Chestnut made the short trip to Bath, to the Egg Theatre, to watch a performance of Stig of the Dump. The Egg is a great venue - both classes filled up the seats and as you can see from the fantastic set, we were really close to the action.
We watched 4 actors (2 male and 2 female) and a puppet Stig perform different parts from the WHOLE story in just a few hours. The children were completely captivated thanks to the humour and the interactive singing and chanting. It was a really great way to round off all the learning we have done around Stig of the Dump in Term 5.
