Through God’s love we learn together, grow together and achieve together.

Today Year 3 walked to the Harlow Museum and Gardens to participate in group activities surrounding their learning of the Stone Age.

During the trip the children were able to:

Dig for fossils using tools similar to archaeologists:

Then, as archaeologists, they recorded where they had found their fossils using a grid sheet.

Look at maps of Harlow and begin to understand its geological features:

The children looked at maps to learn that Harlow was completely covered by water during pre-historical times.

Remember the fossilisation process and explore the fossils that have been discovered in Harlow:

The children learnt that the fossils discovered in Harlow were all creatures that lived in the water.

Explore Stone Age tools:

The children learnt about the tools and how these were used by Stone Age people.

Play a Stone Age board game:

Through this game the children learnt what life in the Stone Age would have been like and how important food, clothing, shelter and fire were during that period.
