Year 3

This term we are learning about...

We have been busy experiencing life as someone living in the Stone Age. We have tried making our own clay stone tools, we got creative with cave art, we tied knots to help us move objects and even tried lighting a fire! We also became Archaeologists and carefully looked for delicate objects in the sand!


Here are some of the amazing facts we have learnt:

  • The first people originated from Africa.
  • Homo erectus are the first know people- we are called Homo Sapiens
  • There are three different ages, Stone/Bronze and Iron Age.
  • Great Britain used to be covered in ice and went through many ice ages.
  • Flint axes were very useful and the main tool people used. 
  • Stone Age people were hunter-gatherers!
