Sights and ‘Smells’ of the Stone Age
Linking to their ‘Stones and Bones’ topic, Year 3 headed to the Chiltern Open Air Museum for some fun workshops! They attended a Stone Age workshop where they met Fox, the head of the Deer Tribe.

As well as this they attended an archaeological workshop where the girls dug up some pottery and dissected ancient poo to find out what people used to eat...
