Today we played, conjunction junction, a team game,where each person in the team has a different conjunction written on their whiteboard. Two sentences appear on the board and as a team the children talk about which conjunctions make sense joining the two sentences together. The time counts down and the teams make their decisions.

We used natural dyes made from onion skins and red cabbage to dye some white cotton today. We discussed how Bronze Age man would have discovered which plants and vegetables would make the best dyes. We thought they might have found out by accident! We also watched a BBC clip about how they made wool to make warm clothes from sheep fleece. It's harder than it looks!

Today we learnt that in the Bronze Age people began to make tools that were metal. They could then stay in one place and start mining and farming. They kept sheep and discovered that they could twist the sheep wool and make cloth by weaving on loam. We had a go at twisting wool fibres. It was hard team work.
