The Stone Age Workshop started with a walk through the different periods of time whilst discussing the significance of each one. This included a Mesolithic wedding and the hunting of a woolly mammoth. After that, the children had the chance to handle some of the artefacts. Although some were replicas we actually had the opportunity to handle some real artefacts which were thousands of years old! Later, the children rotated around activities which included sorting arrowheads, weighing and ordering bones, exploring old coins and sorting a range of artefacts by their materials. 
The afternoon consisted of spear throwing and dressing as a Stone Age person. To end the day, we took part in a quiz to see how much we had learned. The children were amazing, they really showed off their understanding of the topic.

This term we will be going back in time to when humans were first starting out in the world. We will be exploring how they lived, what they ate and wore and finding out just what everyday life was like for a typical Stone Age child.
