Year 5 Stone Age Day

2nd Nov 2016

On Friday 21st October the children in Year 5 went back in time to the Stone Age era!  The workshop was facilitated by experienced educator Rita Caldwell who enhanced the children’s knowledge and skills through this wonderful topic.  The children had the opportunity to experience many activities such as wattle making and weaving, tomb building, using a quern stone to grind corn and a fantastic introduction to archaeology.  It was an action packed day and the children also had the opportunity to dress up and hunt a wild boar with spears.  You’ll be relieved to hear this was made of cardboard!! The workshop was thoroughly enjoyed by Year 5 and was an exciting way to round off their topic for Term 1A.
