Year 3 Stone Age Trip

On Thursday 13th october Year 3 were lucky enough to be taken to the Chiltern Open Air Museum for two fantastic Stone Age workshops!

We were greeted by a Stone Age lady who escorted us to a wooded area. We were taught how to light fire with cotton wool and flint stones which was great. We also had to cover a Stone Age shelter with animal skins and make paint to make our treasured symbols on a tree. After, we made a necklace or bracelet out of bone and straw to keep us safe.

In one of the barns we had an archaeological dig where we went round different activities. We went digging around in bins to try and uncover evidence and decide who lived in that household, we stuck pottery together to create pots, we put evidence together in time order and then use special tools to uncover bones and artefacts in a

The most loved activity was digging around in (fake) poo to see whether the poo came from the Iron Age or Stone Age, based on what we could find in it. The children absolutely loved this, especially squeezing it through their fingers!

Despite a chilly and wet start, the children had a great day and it was a fantastic accompaniment to our Stone Age topic which has now come to a close. We are now doing Geography and learning about Europe and the UK.
