Year 3 Visit to Tatton Park

Year 3 had a wonderful living history day at Tatton Park.
First we made a human timeline so we could see how long ago the stone age period was and how it fits into the history of our country.
We then took part in different activities to help us learn about how life changed for stone age people from the Palaeolithic through to the Neolithic period. We worked together to build a shelter, learnt how stone age people hunted and made fire and took part in some experimental archaeology to see which natural materials would be best to help Neolithic farmers plant seeds, we also learnt how to grind corn to produce flour.
The team at Tatton were amazed at how knowledgeable the children were already and they impressed us all with their fantastic questions, understanding and superb behaviour.
