Year 3 had an exciting trip to Celtic Harmony where they were transported back in time to a Neolithic village and experienced the life as it would have been in Stone Age. They foraged herbs and plants, made stew and even witnessed making fire by rubbing wood. Later they enjoyed their time in a roundhouse with thatched roof and made their own dens from sticks and leaves. It was enlightening to know that Stone Age was a time of discovery and growth. Trading activities were a fantastic way to learn about the goods and valuables of that time period alongside brushing up on some Maths skills. The day ended in an exciting weapons making activity followed by hunting where mammoth hunt was the most celebrated act and taught valuable group skills.
