What an amazing day!!
Pupils boarded the coach at the early hour of 8:00. We made the long journey to the Celtic Harmony site in Hertfordshire. It was fantastic to see so many pupils in costume, it made the day magical for them. We were greeted off the bus by our leaders for the day who led us to the Stone Age village. We had to request access to the village by letting them know that we came in peace. The villagers bargained with us and eventually, we were granted access.
Pupils had a busy morning hunting and foraging in the forest for stereotypical Stone Age foods and vegetables. We had an informative discussion about how hunters and gatherers knew what to eat and where to get it. Then we headed deeper into the forest to complete our hunting training. Pupils got to experience hunting wild animals with their ‘training spear’. Before lunch pupils tried their hand at building a Stone Age den. By then they had well and truly earned their lunch.
After lunch, we enjoyed a Stone Age tools workshop. Pupils were exposed to a wealth of information about different tools made and used in the Stone Age and their different jobs. Following this, we made our way into the roundhouse for a Stone Age cooking class. To end our day we came together in the main roundhouse for a traditional Stone Age storytelling session.
Have a fantastic weekend,
Miss Jennings, Ms Leedham and Mr Murphy.
