Long Long Ago

Our first topic in Class 3 is 'Long Long Ago'. This history-based topic will take us through the following halt term. We will delve into the ‘Stone Age’ and look at the way that our country developed from the use of primitive tools to the discovery of metals and moving through to the ‘Iron Age’. We will learn about their simple ways of life and how they learned to survive by the introduction of farming. We will also learn about the discovery of metal and how this shaped new ways of life and how the development of tools still exists today.

Our Trip to Creswell Crags

Class 3 had a fantastic day at Creswell Crags to explore our topic 'Long Long Ago'. We were taught how to search for food, hunt for animals, light fires and how to be 'zooarchaeologists'! We also had the opportunity to explore the caves that stone age and ice age people lived in. How facinating! We aren't so sure we would survive the Stone Age, but we had a fab day. Take a look at our photos to see what fun we had!
