What lies beneath

This term the shared area by year 3 and 4 has been turned into a cave for our theme – what lies beneath? The term started with a stone age day on the 13th January. The children were able to experience searching for food in an outdoor game that required lots of running around to keep warm in the snow. We also cooked mammoth steaks (they tasted very much like marshmallows) on an open fire, made model mammoths and cooked some delicious stone age jam using ingredients that would have been available at the time – blueberries, blackberries, nuts and honey. The day was very enjoyable and a great experience at the start of our theme.
