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.
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!
