On Wednesday, year three took (a lot of!) steps back in time to find out about the stone age and iron age. We went to Bishop’s Wood in Stourport on Severn to build shelters, hunt for our dinner, make fires, grind wheat for our bread and make cave paintings. We found out that life in the stone age was hard and everybody in a tribe was incredibly important in keeping everyone alive! We also learned that we were not really cut out for life in the stone age, so we came back with a lot to think about.
First, we learned about the time period and found that people and dinosaurs never met.
We became stone age hunter-gatherers and packed all we owned to move somewhere new.
We used our tools and natural materials (mostly!) to create a shelter for our tribe.
We tried our hand at hunting -wooden animals- but some of us would have gone hungry!
We tried building the walls for the homes that were built in the neolithic period.
We made fishing nets by knotting rope together.
We had a fantastic day and we are all ready to continue our learning about life for our early ancestors!
