Shepley First School

Monday 16th September

As part of our History topic we have been learning about how people lived in the Stone Age. We found out that Stone Age people lived in round houses and decided to try and make our own round house structures. We used sticks for the initial structure and then weaved willow round the sticks to create a strong shell. Then we added mud to the outside of the round houses to help block out the cold. The roofs were made out of strawm- take a look!

Monday 23rd September

The children have been busy designing Stone Age tools and making bow and arrows. They have been learning how to tie a Clove Hitch knot (the fish on a dish knot).

Skeletons.

We have been learning about skeletons. We now know that there are three type of skeleton - Endoskeletons where the skeletons are inside the body, Exoskeletons where the skeletons are outside the body and Hydrostatic Skeletons where there is no skeletons. Take a look at our stick skeletons - we had great fun making them!
