The Hunters and Gatherers of Ruby Class had an enriching day out, despite a rather wet start at Avebury henge looking at the evidence people have left behind from the stone age. We found out that they hunted wild ox, pigs, goat , deer, and ducks to eat and gathered apples, berries , roots, cabbage-type vegetables too. We also learnt that tools were made in the stone age out of flint, wood and animal bones.They made antler picks and cattle shoulder blade shovels to dig a nine metre ditch. The ditch took one hundred years to dig!

Good morning Ruby class, hope you all had a good weekend? Another week of learning at home has begun and if anybody has been outside this morning, you’ll have noticed it’s pretty chilly out there! Don’t let this put you off going outside though - put your coats on like you would at school and enjoy the fresh air! Keep sharing your home learning activities by sending them through to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll post them here on our class blog. :-)

It’s been lovely receiving some of your photos over the last few days! Well done to D and O who have been hard at work all week, and well done to Percy who has been helping them to do their work. Great to see so many families learning together.
Super science! 27th March

Bella has been doing some amazing science at home with her mum and sister! Bella’s mum drew around her, then Bella found out about the organs in the body and what shape they are, before drawing and cutting out on card. Bella then tried to locate the organs on her body before labelling them. Amazing work, Bella! Why don’t you all try this at home? :-)

Hello Ruby class, I hope you are all well and keeping busy at home. I am missing you all :-( If you haven’t already given it a try, have a go at PE with Joe (Joe Wicks Body Coach Youtube channel) at 9am Monday-Friday, which is being accessed live by children all over the world! It is definitely challenging and will set you up for the day! Here’s a picture of my children (Juliette and Elisa) and me taking part this morning… Stay safe everyone, Mrs Booth :-)
