Stone Age Theme Day At CONKERS In The Heart Of The National Forest Wednesday 20th March - Thursday 21st March

Our Stone Age Days Meet a Tribe Member - when you enter this workshop, sit down, be quiet and wait to see what is happening! Beliefs & Burials - children discuss the beliefs of Stone and Bronze Age peoples and explore their worshipping practices and rituals. From Hunters to Farmers - children compare and contrast the difference in lifestyle between hunter gatherers and early farmers. What do they hunt and gather? And what role does technology play? Weapons - from picking up a rock, to shooting a missile. Learn how our ancestors developed the tools to hunt and survive, in a dangerous world. Trading in Stone Age - a History Explorer takes the children on a journey, following Stone Age peoples on their travels. Where did they go to trade, how did they get there and what were they hoping to trade? Grinding Grain - after gathering grains from the fields, the next step is to grind them into flour. Children grind some grain using both a saddle quern and a rotary quern and compare the two. They take their flour back to class.

    We’re looking forward to welcoming you and your class to CONKERS soon for your Viking or Roman or Stone Age Heritage Theme Day. Feedback from previous years has told us that many teachers like to prepare their class for an educational visit to CONKERS, because, the children get so much more out of the day if they have touched on the topics in class beforehand. So here is a brief description of the workshops your class will be enjoying in a few weeks’ time when they visit CONKERS.
