In hawthorn this week, they have been revising on their stone age paintings.

Michael’s stone age painting of a deer being hunted by stone age men.

Michael has used charcoal in his picture. He sketched gently first, just to get the outline of his image, and then he filled it in to make it clear. He didn’t make it colourful because he thought it would make his picture bold.

All of the children in year 4 had scrunched up the paper to make it look like the walls that the stone age people would draw on. They tried to replicate what the stone age drawings would look like as best as they could and I think that they did well. In this lesson they used many Building Learning Powers such as revising and planning. They needed to revise on the materials that they used and they would answer different questions such as how and why. All in all, i think that this lesson really made the yr 4s think about their pictures and stone age replicas.
