As part of our exciting topic, ‘Stone & Bones'’, Year 3 took part in a ,fantastic workshop day led by one of our Stone Age ancestors! During this visit, the Palaeolithic Stone Age man arrived, wearing  garments made from red deer skin, and carrying his spears as he did alongside his fellow hunter-gatherers around 10000 BC!

During the workshop the children learnt,  how to aim a spear and get a hands-on experience of ancient technology and skills from the Paleolithic period of the Stone Age right through to the Iron Age. We all had a fabulous day and gained lots of knowledge and experience from the workshop.
