Year 3 - Stone Age Workshop

Year 3 - Stone Age Workshop.

In Topic this term Year 3 are learning about the Stoneage. To support their learning the children had the opportunity to take part in a stoneage workshop...

The children travelled back in time to the stoneage. They began with a class discussion about what sort of things happened in the stoneage. 

David A from Scotland Class said that the stoneage period dates back 2.5 million years ago. Children acted like cave people walking, making silly faces and making clicking noises.

Children then explored how they lived. What cave people ate and the types of things they got up to. Sophia was selected to show how we might react if a wolf was running towards us. 

Children were then encouraged to role play and grouped to show freeze frames on how cave people would make campfires, cave paintings, picking fruit and the drying animal skin. They also used role play and freeze frames to show cave people hunting fish, birds and animals such as saber tooth tigers, giant sloths and woolly mammoths using tools such as spears, bow and arrows and rocks. Children also made tents from the stoneage, made tools and learnt about Stonehenge where it is believed to be a place of worship.

Did you know that the game draughts dates back to the stoneage?

All the children in year 3 had a great time,

Well done Year 3!
