Today, both Y3 classes went to Creswell Crags to find out more about what life was like in the Stone Age.
We spent some time in the museum, looking at the different bones from animals in the Stone Age and we even saw how they turned bones and stones into tools. We also got a chance to look at a real mammoth’s tooth and build the skeleton of different animals using real animal bones.
In order to see how people in the Stone Age lived, we also got to explore a cave at Creswell Crags, where we saw different weapons that had been used by the inhabitants of the cave! The cave had a very low ceiling, so we had to bend down to walk through. We also turned our torch lights off to experience how dark it would have been during the Stone Age, but that didn’t last too long!
Our third activity was about exploring the outdoors and investigating how people in the Stone Age found food and water. We had to follow animal footprints to find various foods such as, honey and hare. We practised our spear throwing skills by ‘hunting’ a reindeer and we had to try and create a fire using wooden tools and friction.
We had a fantastic day!
