Tribal Tales

Last year, Year 3 found themselves transported back 2.5 million years ago where they learnt all about how the early humans lived. We went on a learning journey which saw us through the Stone Age, The Bronze Age and The Iron Age. They had a go at creating our own Stone Age weapons as well as Bronze Age inspired pots. Some children even created their own settlements for their homework project. 

Here are some examples!
