Submitted by class3 on Thursday, November 23, 2017 - 16:58

Today, year 3 went to the Museum of Kent life in Maidstone for Stone Age day. We had many different sessions;

  • we learnt about trading,
  • we found out what weapons they had,
  • we learnt about how Stone Age people evolved from hunter gatherrs to farmers,
  • we met a member of a stone age tribe,
  • we found out what beliefs and burial traditions they had,
  • and took part in cave painting.

We also had a play in the outdoor areas within the museum complex.

A brilliant day all round! Thank you to all the accompanying adults.

Stone Age Day

Today Leopards class had a visit from Mr Victrix who taught us all about the Stone Age! We learnt about how the first hunter-gatherers lived, and how the invention of farming lead to Neolithic times. We enjoyed learning about different Stone Age weapons, and even tried our hands at group deer hunting (not a real deer, but a willing volunteer wearing antlers!). 

In the afternoon we did a variety of Art and Craft activities, but also had the opportunity to hunt our own woolly mammoth using javelins! We've had a great day and learnt a lot!
