This week in Year 3 we travelled back to the Bronze Age to celebrate the end of our topic. The children looked fantastic in their costumes and had put in so much effort to make sure they really looked the part! We began by finding out our new names for the day, which took a bit of getting used to, as well as what our ‘job’ was – We had farmers, warriors and of course a leader of our tribe. We then decorated our Bronze Age beakers with detailed designs, using lines and shapes to create symmetrical patterns. As we moved towards the Iron Age we prepared some food for us to eat, making traditional oatcakes. We also made our own brooches and ended our day with a campfire, collecting firewood and then enjoying a cheeky marshmallow around the fire (not quite in keeping with the Iron Age theme but enjoyable nonetheless!). We then sampled our oatcakes which we all rather enjoyed and listened to a story to round off our day.
For all of the photos from the day please see our class page on the website.
Next half term our topic is ‘The Greeks’ – A fantastic topic which we cannot wait to get stuck into. Have a lovely half term, rest and relax and we’ll see you all in a weeks time 🙂
