We tried making jewellery out of clay, painted a cave print, made animals with clay, tried out weaving, engraved a pretend bone using flints, milked a goat, built a mini sculpture of Stonehenge and made a fence for a goat pen out of sticks and rope! Everyone had a brilliant day and learned so much about the Stone Age.

Week beginning 4.9.23

Welcome back Welbeck😊


We’ve had an amazing first week back! 

The children have settled in brilliantly and giving a lovely warm welcome to their new class teacher and friend.

We have a new topic which is titled Walking with our Ancestors. We will begin to travel through the ages, beginning with the Stone Age.
I’m hoping everyone is excited for the trip on Tuesday. This will be a great experience and will give the children a hands on approach to learning about the Stone Age. 

PE is Thursday and Friday so please remember to send your child in with their PE kit. It can stay in school until half term. I will be sending homework on a Friday and this will be a rotation of Maths, English and Humanities.



Welcome back to school Welbeck!
