Our day at Somerset Museum learning about the Romans.
22nd September 2021
At the Somerset Museum Class 3 explored primary sources and artefacts to help them learn about how the Romans came to Britain. They all had the opportunity to dress like a Roman soldier and discussed why the shield was slightly curved, as well as having a chance to explore the whole museum afterwards.
Stone Age Tools
On Thursday 10th March, we made the most of the dry weather and combined our history topic based around the Stone Age with some forest school activities. We went out onto the school field to find suitable sticks and stones to create a Stone Age axe or spear. We discussed why we needed to use elastic bands and that in prehistoric times they would have used grass, vines or string made from animal skin.
Stone Age Day
On Thursday 7th April 2022, we had some very special visitors at Cheddon Fitzpaine Church School. We learnt how to make a fire using natural resources like silver birch bark, built a cone shaped teepee like the Stone Age people would in the Mesolithic period, created our own Stone Age paintings with paint made of ash and clay and finally, we learnt how Stone Age people used stones to grind down oats to make their own bread. We were also given a special treat around the fire at the end of the day- Stone Age bread! We added some honey to make it sweet.
