Exploring the Stone Age

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been exploring the Stone Age through art. We began by researching what exactly cave paintings were and why they were so significant. cave paintings

After that, we had a go at making our own handprint cave paintings by using pastels we had ground ourselves with rocks we’d found in the garden. It was hard work, but completely worth it.

We also had a go at using design tools on the iPads to digitally make cave paintings which showed what life was like in the Stone Age.

Last week, we learnt about Stone Age jewellery and were fascinated to discover that it was made from all sorts, such as eagle talons, teeth and bones. We then had a go at making our own Stone Age necklaces out of clay. We having a go at shaping the clay into the different objects the jewellery would have once been made of.


We are looking forward to next week when we will be painting them and assembling all the pieces.
