Creating Stone Age Farms
Yesterday Class 5 were tasked with creating their own stone age farm - using lego! First the children had to research why the people in the later stone age began settling and what kind of animals they may have kept on their farms. The children worked in small teams and had to think carefully about the layout. Mrs Reade fetched in some toy animals to add to our farms which gave them a very authentic feel! The outcomes were superb with some very well thought out designs - we definitely have some budding architects in Class 5!
The finished products are currently displayed in the back of our classroom and we have enjoyed looking at the differences and similarities of each other's design. We also have a greater understanding of what life was like when people started settling in one place.
