Dove class have been getting to grips this week with the techniques and materials early man used to create cave paintings. They began by experimenting with drawing in semi-darkness and upside down under their desks. We then collected twigs and used them, along with fingers and feathers, to draw their own pictures with mud, berry juice, charcoal and chalk. We think they’ve turned out really well!
I am so excited to share our published stories! Well done to all of the Year 1 children involved.
Year 1 parents if you ordered the “My First Story”, please see me in the morning so I can pass them on!
Doves have been learning all about wartime rationing and how people used strange ingredients in their foods in an effort to ‘make do’. Today we had lots of fun making carrot biscuits and taste-testing them to see if the carrot was a good sugar substitute (the recipe only used a very small amount of sugar). The biscuits proved pretty popular, so much so that the children asked if they could have the recipe to make them at home (see below!)
