This Autumn term we have been looking at the Stone Age. We were very lucky to be able to go to Butser Ancient Farm on a school trip. Here we learnt all about what it was like to live in the Stone Age. We spoke all about the different stages of the stone age and were able to go into a real life Mesolithic and Neolithic house.
At Butser, we had lots of fun wattling- this was using hazel wood and weaving in and out of posts to create a fence. We had a race to see which team was the quickest. After we were able to be real Archaelogists and excavate for real stone age artefacts.
In the afternoon we found out that in the Stone age they had no televisions and not many people could write. So we thought how did they tell stories or stay entertained? Helen, our guide taught us all about how people from the stone age used paintings and carving to tell their stories. We had the chance to make our own chalk carvings using white chalk and leaves.
