Stone Age Roundhouse Experience

Stone age roundhouse experience

In years 3 and 4, the children had a fantastic time at the Heatree Activity Centre on Dartmoor, learning about the Stone Age and the Bronze Age. 


We really did go back in time!  The children made their own spears out of willow and hunted (pretend) deer to take back to the round house.  We sat around a fire in the roundhouse and learned about how people lived back in the Stone Age.  We even got to play musical instruments that would have been used in that era. 


Later in the day, we learned about how to ground their own porridge oats, made our own clay decorative jewellery from items we gathered. 


This was a fantastic experience for everyone, and we were so lucky to be on Dartmoor on such a beautifully cold autumn day!
