Prehistory Experience

Prehistory Experience

Target Audience:  Key Stage 2

Activity Overview:

Travel from being Neolithic Hunter Gatherers to Bronze Age Potters and Iron Age Farmers in this dynamic journey through a million years of Prehistory. The day starts with a demonstration of the evolution from Stone to Iron showing real metal ores. Your own Prehistory Leader will guide you around in small groups of around 15 children.

  • Neolithic Flints and Soap Knapping Arrow Heads
  • Wattle Fence Making and Explore the Bronze Age Roundhouse
  • Make Your Own Bronze Age Beaker Pot
  • Grind Grain on Iron Age Quern Stones and make Flat Bread
  • Trade and Barter

Trading has two parts:

Part 1: your class will swap real artefacts as they role play as characters and use numerical problem solving in the trading game to barter for a wide range of goods.
Part 2: your pupils will enjoy Trading with Tagua, by swapping their pocket money for coins to trade for the more precious produce in the shop, with a wide range of heritage produce supporting local craftsmen.

 

“The children loved all the hands-on activities and all the discussions got them thinking deeply about the history topic they’d just learnt about” – Yvette Roberts, Thorley Hill, November 2018
