Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

In search of Stone Age civilisation!

We had a great time at Brighton Museum and Art Gallery.  We set out to explore how Stone Age people lived in Sussex. We had to uncover the clues to their existence.  We became 'Time Detectives'. Firstly, decoding to find the combination to the key that would unlock the secrets of the artefacts and replica objects of the museum.


Once in the treasure chest of artefacts and replicas, we were able to use the clues to unravel the big question, ‘Who am I?’  


Building an insight into the different types of people who lived in the past, we began a comparative study of similarities and differences.  Each group deciding what they were capable of making, but what they still need to survive.

Adam shared, “We traded stone and flint tools with the cooks, for some cooking bowls!”

Avni, “We were fishermen, so we traded fish and acorns for stone tools!”

Asher said, “What I traded was a knife because I was a tool-smith for some flint to make more weapons!”

“Since I was a tool-smith, I traded some tools for some honey from the farmers!” – Winning.


Gathering for the storytelling at the end of trading.


Well done Year 4!
