Stone Age Nightingales

The Nightingales, along with the Puffins, have just returned from a great day at Gressenhall Museum. The aim of the day was to participate in a number of Stone Age workshops. We had to learn how to build a shelter and the materials it would be made of and then we learned how to grind corn and had the opportunity to try on a variety of Stone Age type clothes. That was good fun!! After lunch we looked at a number of artefacts and learned how flints were made before returning to the forest to learn how to hunt wild animals. We had to creep very quietly and also learned what foods there would be from plants and trees. We learned alot of new vocabulary and also how important teamwork is. We all had a great day and will continue our learning back in the classroom.
