1. We came back to school very excited to start in our new class! We wrote recounts all about what we’d been up to in the summer holidays.
2. The next day, Miss Martin said that she’d found a recount that did not have a name on it. When she asked who it belonged to no one claimed it! So she read it to the class and it was a recount about visiting Stonehenge which none of us had ever been to! It turned out that it belonged to a brother and sister named Greg and Eve.
3. We wanted to find out more about Stonehenge so we looked at where it was in the country and how long it would take for us to get there.
4. Greg and Eve suggested that we made leaflets for Stonehenge, so we needed to do our research first! We created mind maps to write down everything we could find about Stonehenge.
5. We then created our very own leaflets! We started by looking at some real examples to help us decide how we wanted ours to look.
6. We made sure that we included capital letters, full stops and commas in a list. We also used persuasive language to encourage people to visit.
7. Greg and Eve decided they wanted to take us there! We explored Stonehenge and wrote some very detailed diaries. Whilst we were there something CRAZY happened! We ended up travelling back in time!
8. We quickly became worried as we noticed that Stonehenge had disappeared! We were stood in an empty field. Then Greg and Eve noticed something in the distance. We met another brother and sister called Grug and Ugger. They told us we were in the Stone Age!
9. They wanted to know about where we’d come from. So we showed them items from our time. We discussed how we couldn’t possibly show them everything so these were only clues about our lives.
10. Grug and Ugger then showed us items that they used. This provided us with clues about the Stone Age people used to live. We were really impressed with their creations!
11. Grug and Ugger told us that they loved to draw. They took us on a tour around the caves and we saw some beautiful art work.
12. People in the Stone Age could not read or write so this is how they communicated their daily lives. We had a go at leaving a message only through pictures and found it very tricky!
13. We then looked at how different pictures and symbols are used within the Christian religion as these also provide different messages. We then created our own beautiful stain glass windows using these symbols.
14. Next we had a try at creating our own cave pictures! It was really tricky to draw on to the rocky surface. We made sure that we only used the colours that they were able to make from grinding rocks.
