Year 3& 4 have been making cave paintings in the manner that Stone Age people would have done. They have used natural colours to represent plants and crushed stone colours and applied these with their fingers instead of brushes.

 

 

Year 3 & 4 have been creating some work for display relating to the stone- age theme. They made spears and tools out of clay, they drew around their hands with charcoal, made a camp- fire out of tissue and sticks and cut out some leaves.
