On Thursday 3rd of October, as part of our Stone Age theme, Year 3 had a visit from Jeffrey Andrews, who is an artist. He brought some fossils and tools in to show us. We had a discussion as to what each of the tools was for, and how the fossils were made.
Can you make a guess as to what each of the tools or weapons was used for?
Jeffrey encouraged the children to take part in a dig. First they had to get ready. Hi visibility vests are important as archaeology can be a dangerous business!
Next came the dig.
As mentioned before, the children were given strict instructions on how to use the tools needed for the dig. The children gave each other the required jobs, and had to work closely in a team.
The children had to record their finds, noting how many their were and providing a description. The children found seeds, pottery, charcoal and bones!
The children were able to use their skills of deduction to talk about their finds, and relate it the other work they have done in class.
