6th October - Cave Paintings

Can they paint like stone age humans?

Today, Ash class experienced what it was like to paint a cave like someone living in the stone age. Using a range of natural materials, the children made paints by using things such as grass, flowers, charcoal and dirt. They then mashed them into a paste. The children then got to experience what painting a cave was actually like, by painting the underside of their tables. Overall, all the children had a brilliant time, and realised just how hard it was to create cave paintings in the stone age!
