Year 3 Stone Age Dig!

The letter explained how there had been some important discoveries made at our school during the Christmas holidays. Their new technology had enabled them to scan our school site and find an area with unusual masses in. He had in fact discovered several artefacts from the Stone Age


Year 3 were given the fantastic opportunity to visit the excavation site and take a closer look at the findings. We had a brilliant time examining the artefacts and discussing each exhibit, deciding what it might be, what it could have been used for and how it was made. After closer inspection we found a woolly mammoth skull, sabre tooth tiger skull, Stone Age arrow heads and a Stone Age pot.


Once we had returned to the classroom we were able to take a closer look at the different artefacts and find out more information about them from Dr Jones’ fact files. We really had a truly inspiring and creative morning.
