Going back to the Stone Age at Skelton Grange

We had a lovely trip to Skelton Grange to learn all about life in Stone Age, We enjoyed stealth  hunting, target shooting rabbits and mammoths, den making and cooking on an open fire. Here are some of our photos from our day.

Well Being Day

During our school well being day we completed lots of different activities that can help our mental health and give us strategies to cope with worries and anxieties we might have. 

Dance - Being physically active means sitting down less and moving our bodies more. Many people find that physical activity helps them maintain positive mental health.

Art/Sewing - Creative hobbies can have many positive effects on your mental health, it  can allow us to express our feelings and emotions.

First Aid for our minds - During this time we learnt about strategies we can use when our worries get too much including grounding, breathing and using a special happy stone. 

 

Here are some photos of the activities we completed. 

 

In RE we have been learning about Creation and the Fall. We created these art works to represent the fall. 

We have mummified some tomatoes to understand a little about the mummification process. 

We have loved learning about Ancient Egypt so far and have created some fantastic art work too.
