We visited Layer Marney Tower for a day exploring the Stone Age. We were lucky enough to become archaeologists and find real tools, arrows and bones from thousands of years ago. Working in the courtyard of the Tower, as people from the Stone Age, we then caught our dinner, crossed a river and tried to create fire from flint. It was exhausting but we managed it all! After a lunch (and a wonderful time rolling down the hill and comparing the Tower itself to the Iron Man) we made pottery and created artwork using dots. Finally, we visited the goats, sheep and chickens. It was a fantastic day and we learnt so much about the Stone Age.

In Geography and DT this week we have become designers and engineers to create a replicas t f 30 pieces of spaghetti and 10 marshmallows. We worked in teams with 10 minutes to design the structure and 30 minutes to construct it. At the end we measures the strength and stability by seeing if our tower remained upright for 30 seconds. We also measured the height - the tallest being 51 cm.

Despite the wind and the rain, Year 4 had a fantastic time at FACT.

The children had fun working as a team, solving puzzles, crossing the snow for cake and finding a safe passage through a wooden river! A wonderful sharing lunch and prize giving rounded the day off perfectly. Mrs Crees and Mrs Rushen were very proud of all the children for showing all the skills needed for a great team.
