As part of our learning all about the Stone Age, Year 3 travelled back in time on a school trip to Kents Cavern.
The children had the opportunity to handle Stone Age artefacts and were able to ask the experts questions. They were really curious about the hole in the skull. They learned many interesting facts, including that head aches were cured by putting an axe into the skull to relieve pressure!

They explored the cave network and imagined what life would be like for people living in the cave. The children learnt how Stone Age people survived living alongside dangerous beasts, using fire in scallop shells to scare them off.

It was a really valuable learning experience for all of the children!
