Tribal Tales

Let’s travel back to prehistoric time

Through our research, we’ll learn about the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. What were people’s daily lives like and
what epic battles did they fight? 
We’ll look closely at cave paintings and create our own. As we learn about the Bronze Age, we’ll build monuments and
investigate their shadows. Copying the Beaker folk style, we’ll make clay containers. We'll investigate how people in the past lived in caves and visit an actual cave to experience it for real!  During an exploratory dig, we’ll search for ancient artefacts. What will we uncover?

Help your child prepare for their project
It’s amazing to think that Stone Age people were alive 2.5 million years ago! As they used to paint on walls, why not create
a painting on an old roll of wallpaper or a smooth stone from the garden? You could also visit your local library to research
the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age history of your local area. Alternatively, visit a site from one of these time periods
and imagine what it would have been like to live there.

POOLE'S CAVERN VISIT 13.2.2020 Year Three visited Poole's cavern in Buxton today and had a fantastic time! We saw lots of weird and wonderful things like stacks of fried eggs, a cat that had been turned to stone and a dragons eye! The cave was massive and the guide told us lots of interesting facts about the rock formations and about the stalactites and stalagmites. We had a great day so here are some photographs to show you!
