Life Through the Stone Age.

In History, Year 3 have been learning about life through the ages.

First, they learned about the Stone Age and investigated artefacts from this time. The children became archaeologists and using images, discussed what the artefacts would have been used for and what they were made out of. We also had a special visitor, Mrs Pugh who told the children about her previous occupation as an archaeologist and what it involved.

Next, the children learnt about life during the Stone Age and wrote a diary entry imagining they were a child during this time who would hunt for food and make tools using flint.

After this, the boys and girls learned about how life changed during the Bronze Age and the Iron Age because people developed skills in farming and trading.

Finally, the children ended our History unit by taking part in a Stone Age workshop. The boys and girls used a piece of string to visualise how long ago the Stone Age was. Throughout the workshop, they played a Stone Age version of snakes and ladders, based on hunting and gathering food. The children also used natural pigment to create their own cave drawings and handled Stone Age artefacts.
