This week Year 3 visited the Eco Centre in Southport and were taken on a Stone Age Journey. The children were involved in many activities to enhance their knowledge of the Stone Age, including a walk to the Green Beach to experience what the land would have been like during the Stone Age, an archaeological dig, uncovering and analysing footprints and they worked in teams to complete question and answer board games focused on the Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic periods. We had a fantastic day were the children had the opportunity to take part in memorable learning activities and took away a vast range of knowledge.
Hi Year 3,
Welcome to the Stone Age! I hope you are enjoying our new topic, we are only just getting started, and yet I am already so excited! There will be lots to learn about as we journey through pre-historic Britain. Currently we are looking at the Stone Age, focusing on hunter gatherers, food and weapons and settlements, then it will be time to move on to the Bronze Age where we will be looking at beautiful, handcrafted jewellery and bronze as the newly discovered metal, and finally to complete our topic we will follow in the footsteps of the Celts in to the Iron Age. Let me know what you are enjoying most about this topic!
