What was life like from the Stone Age to the Iron Age?
What was life like from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age?
This project aims to look at life in Neolithic Britain through the eyes of the people who lived at this time as they attempt to hunt and farm enough food to live on. We will learn how hunter-gatherers settled in one place and kept animals and grew crops, although they still hunted wild animals when the chance presented itself. We will learn about Stonehenge and its significance.
Already we have gone on a trip to Merrivale on Dartmoor where we saw stone rows, hut circles, menhirs and much more. We completed mathematical challenges, art work, literacy activities and identification of structures while we were there. We will continue learn through art, music, dance as well as through story writing and drama. We are looking forward to a very interesting and varied topic.
