Year 3 - School Trip to Danbury - 21st March 2023


On Tuesday 21st March, Year 3 took a trip to Danbury Country Park to experience life as Stone Age people. 

We got up to lots of activities throughout the day including building our own dens (using the natural materials around us as well as some artificial materials to represent animal skin and tendons), lighting fires using a flint striker, hunting with our spears and finally cave paintings using natural materials and some coloured chalk. 

Year 3 are currently trying to find out the best rock to make a stone age tool. Today, 3WP carried out experiments to test: durability, buoyancy and permeability. One member of each group was assigned the role of photographer, to capture the investigations!


Year 3 got the opportunity to watch a 'stone age' fruit stew being made, to help them with writing their own set of instructions for making the stew. They also had the option of trying the stew, which received mixed reviews!
