This term Year 3 are learning all about Stone Age to Iron Age.
We started this topic with a visit to Butser Ancient farm.

Firstly, we learnt to make clunch. We did this by getting a wooden hammer and breaking chalk into tiny pieces.

Then, we mixed the chalk with dirt and water. We then used the mixture to create a wall, like they would have done.

After this, we created our own stone carvings using a piece of chalk and flint. Some of us also turned ours green, using a leaf.

Once we had done this, we had lunch around the camp fire and played some games.

Later on, we made our own fences by weaving branches in and out of each other.

Once this was done, we made our own bracelets and visited the shop.

Then it was home time!
It was a very cold, wet and windy day but we coped fantastically and had so much fun. We learnt so much about how people in the stone age lived and we can now use this in our learning at school.
