Summer – Digging Deep


In the Summer Term, Year 3 become archaeologists and go ‘Digging Deep’ as we travel back in time to prehistory. We shall meet our very own “Stone Age Boy” who will help us explore the past. We will investigate the essential Stone Age skills needed for survival such as shelter building, finding food and tool making. We will explore the significance of ancient monuments and create our own cave art.  In science we shall discover the different properties of soils and rocks.  On a visit to Butser Ancient Farm, Year 3 will spend the day finding out that Stone Age people were not that different to us!
