Here are the photos from our wonderful trip to Holbrook Creek and our afternoon making stone age tools! Both of these events happened during the second half of the Autumn term.


At the creek, we explored different types of rocks, examined the different layers of soil and examined remnants of Stone Age human activity. The afternoon that we made tools, we experimented with splitting bamboo, tying slate to the cane and using natural glue.


One lovely educational morning out of the classroom and one creative afternoon inside!

The children enjoyed making butter during their lesson on the transition from hunter-gatherer to farmer today. We were all so excited that we forgot to take any photos of the action, I have included the instructions here so that all can 'try it at home'. There is also a recipe for the type of bread that Stone Age man would have cooked and eaten.
