Manor Lodge Trip

We recently had a trip to Manor Lodge where we got to unleash our inner 'cave person' by having a go at being stone age people for the day. We built shelters, used bow and arrows and looked at how stone age fires were started. Have a look at our gallery below:

Y3 go 'potty' for the Stone Age

We are really enjoying our Stone Age topic in Y3 this term and it has been fascinating to learn all about our early ancestors. This week we have been following in their footsteps and making our own clay pottery - a technique that first appeared in Britain during the Neolithic period of the late Stone Age. It was dirty work but, when you see our results, we're sure that you'll agree that it was worth it!
