Year 4 ‘Stone Age’ Topic 2019

On Friday 14th June, Year 4 went on a trip to the Time and Tide Museum to support their learning in Topic this half term. At the beginning of the day, they were taken back in time to the Stone Age before taking part in four different activities. They hunted deer with a Stone Age caveman, investigated the Happisburgh footprints, built a Stone Age den out of willow branches and animal skins, and examined various Stone Age artefacts that had been discovered locally in Norfolk, including flint tools over 5000 years old! The children had an enjoyable and fascinating day and were praised by the Time and Tide Museum for their enthusiasm and brilliant behaviour.

Following this trip, the Year 4 Learning Cafe was based around the text ‘Stig of the Dump’ as it has been our core text this term in English. Mrs Ashman read an extract to introduce the parents to the story and the characters before Miss Price took them on a whistle-stop tour of grammar in Year 4.

 We set up a variety of tasks that supported the work we are doing in English lessons as well as providing the children and parents with an opportunity to engage in some creative activities.

The activities included:

  • A recount of our recent trip to the Time and Tide Museum
  • A newspaper report related to the Stone Age
  • A poster advertising the Time and Tide Museum
  • A life-size collage of ‘Stig of the Dump’
  • Drawings of Stone Age scenes
