The History Man

On Thursday 11th October, The History Man came to visit us. The day began with looking at some incredible artefacts: beginning with stones, which our ancestors began using as tools, to their discovery of flint and bronze! We tracked all of these tools on a timeline and were fascinated by the adaptations that were made.

 

 

 

 

 

In our afternoon session, the children had an opportunity to:

  • dress like a girl or boy from the Stone Age
  • build a shelter
  • throw spears (made of foam so that we didn't upset Mr Burns)
  • chop wood with stone tools
  • grind grain to make flour

 

The children had a go at each activity and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Have a look at some of the pictures below:
