The Stone Age

Historic Workshop

Sessions:

  • Introduction – A Stone Age homo-sapien will wow the children with their animalistic behaviour and strange language!​ They will show the children some of their weapons and tools and try to communicate with them without using a common language!​
  • Bones Investigation – The children will get to handle a plethora of real animal bones and decide what they are and which animal they have come from.
  • Cave Drawings – Cave drawings will be looked at and then the children will emulate these using chalk and charcoal on slate boards.
  • Artefact Investigation – The children will be shown a large range of Stone-Age artefacts, including flint tools, animal furs and Stone-Age equipment. Depending on the number of classes, children will also get to handle some of these.
  • Tools/Weapons Making – Using knapped flint, sticks, twine and feathers, children will make Stone-Age knives, spears, arrows, hammers, drills, axes and anything else they think up!
  • Hunting/Archery – Using safety arrows, the children will get to have a go at archery! The targets are common animals that the Stone Age people hunted: wild boar, stags, pheasants, badgers and hares.
