Term 3

The Stone Age


Why was Stonehenge built?  This term we will be historical detectives and try and discover the answer.  Why not look in a book and see what clues you can find to help the class answer this question.

This term we will be studying the Stone Age. To help with out learning, on Thursday 12th January 2017 we will have a Stone Age workshop in school and all Year 3 children are invited to come dressed as a Stone Age person!

We kindly request a voluntary contribution of £3.00 per child to cover the day.  If we do not receive sufficient funds then unfortunately we will have to cancel the event.


Our text in English will be 'Stig of the Dump' by Clive King, who based his story in the village of Ash, near Sevenoaks, where he lived as a young boy.



Who would you prefer to be? Stig or Barney?

We had a fantastic Stone Age Day and learned many new facts! We hunted mammoths, built Stonehenge and learned how Stone Age man lived. Thank you for such brilliant costumes, the children looked wonderful!

Cave Art

3AD all worked together to create thier own cave art.

They included pictures of mammoths, hunters and hand prints.

They were inspired by the Stone Age cave paintings found in 1940 by children in the Dordogne region of France.
