Mesolithic Mirth at Chiltern Open Air Museum
A visit to the award winning Chiltern Open Air Museum immersed Year 3 girls in the Mesolithic era as they journeyed into the past to experience what life was like during the Stone Age.
A fun and informative way to kickstart Year 3’s new topic; pupils were introduced to the middle Stone Age and were taught some of the important skills essential to life during that period of history. Set on a replica campsite, the girls spent the workshop outdoors, learning how to construct temporary shelters and build campfires. There was also the opportunity to create Stone Age jewellery, spears and even their own camouflage!
Molly Mansfield, Junior Girls teacher, reported:
“Year 3 had a fantastic day at the Chiltern Open Air Museum and enjoyed learning new skills”.
