Learning Together, Achieving Forever

Year 3 Stone Age Day

Wow! What a day. The children looked so fantastic streaming across the courtyard in their amazing Stone Age costumes as they came into school this morning. It really helped to bring buzz and excitement to the day.


To start, the children selected their Stone Age names and decided upon symbols to best represent them. We then used careful peeling and cutting skills to prep the vegetables for our stew. Later, we headed into the woodlands to build dens and 'hunt and gather' to survive. The children really got into role and were using their learning to explain what each thing they had scavenged would be used for e.g. 'heated' stones to warm water for cooking. 


After lunch we built our clay Stone Age houses. The children showed incredible resilience when working with the clay, especially as it was drying out quickly. Finally, we were able to sample the Stone Age stew. It was delicious!


It has been a wonderful day. We hope the children had a fantastic day  - have a look at the pictures to see what we got up to.
