3B`s Stone Age Day Experience

Year 3 had a great day at Ryton Pools learning all about the Stone Age. We did a range of activities including den building, exploring artefacts from the Stone Age such as a hand axe and an elephant`s tooth! We also made our own fire, roasted `mushrooms` and learnt how to light a fire using flint.

The rangers told us lots of interesting facts about the Stone Age, how people lived, hunted for animals to survive and the history of Ryton Pools which goes back over 500,000 years ago. A big thank you to all the staff and parents who came which us, who all agreed it was a brilliant day!
