Target Audience: Key Stage 2
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 by swapping their pocket money for gold coins to trade for the more precious produce in the shop, with a wide range of heritage produce supporting local craftsmen.
