Skara Brae

It’s been good to have most of the Owls back this week and we’ve had a busy time investigating the Neolithic settlement of Skara Brae which was first discovered in 1850. There has been a lot of discussion about the site, particularly focussed on why the inhabitants might have deserted the site. We even used Google Earth to find it and found the settlement was clearly visible in the aerial photographs. 

At Forest School this week, we became predators trying to find our dinner, practised our throwing skills to see how hard it would have been to hunt with a spear and made anatomically accurate skeletons using natural materials! 

Elsewhere, we’ve started planning our own Stone Age stories in English, have been discovering more about Place Value in Maths and improving our Football skills in PE. FS montage
