Year 3 Stone Age Workshop

Year 3 had a phenomenal drama workshop last week exploring the Stone Age. The students created still images with their bodies in order to get a sense of the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic periods (beginning, middle and end of the Stone Age). They explored and vocalized how Stone Age people may have communicated with each other as well as guided improvisation to imagine what life would have been like in a stone age settlement. Finally, through a ‘Dragon’s Den’ based activity, the students discussed inventions for this time and tried to persuade Stone Age men to buy them – this linked nicely with their English topic.
