Mammoth Hunt

Year 3 have been learning all about the Stone Age! We wanted to know about Stone Age weapons and food, so we learnt all about spears, bows and arrows with the strategies that they used to hunt large prey!  Forcing them off the edge of a cliff seemed to be a great way to do it!

We were so interested that we wanted to make our own weapons, so we headed to the field and made our own 'flint' spears with stones and sticks.  We tested them, throwing them as far as we could and then measured them to the nearest centimeter! We then brought the results back, using ICT to produce our own graphs.  Miss Howson was so impressed she even made it into our Numeracy display.

We had so much fun! We can't wait to learn even more about the Stone Age!
