History Man Visit - Stone Age to Iron Age Farming

3D had a fantastic visit from Adrian Warrell. They learnt all about how and why farming changed from the Neolithic Age to the Iron Age. They got to use a range of farming tools from these time periods and they ploughed part of the field using an Iron Age plough. After, they got to sow some barley and pea seeds which they are looking forward to seeing grow. Here is what some of the children had to say about it:  

‘Today we used different farming tools from the Stone Age and Iron Age to dig up the earth and we used a plough too. Then we planted pea seeds and barley. I really enjoyed using the plough!’ – Anya (3D)  

‘Today, with the history man, we dug and ploughed the ground using farming tools from the past. After that, we sowed pea and barley seeds.’ – Henry (3D)  

Making skeletons from natural materials

In science, 3D have been learning all about skeletons and they used their knowledge to create a skeleton out of natural materials. They thought carefully about what materials to use so that their models looked as close to a skeleton as possible. They also learnt about the three main roles of the skeleton and thought about what life would be like if we didn’t have a skeleton.
