Lea Valley Stone Age Day
This term, year 3 were lucky enough to visit Lea Valley for a Stone Age day. One of the activities involved us spending some time outdoors. We had to identify the different types of plants that they would have had in the Stone Age. We were then able to discuss what they would have been used for. We also had a go at using a fire steel to make our own fires. This proved quite tricky although a few of us did manage to set alight the cotton wool tinder! In the afternoon, we spent time looking at different artefacts. These included flint, spear, arrowheads and antlers. After that, we had a go at creating our own cave paintings by candlelight using charcoal. It was a really fun and interesting day and everyone definitely enjoyed themselves and learned lots!
