Welcome to Year 3
Bowes Museum Trip
Class 3 enjoyed a fantastic trip to Bowes Museum on Tuesday. They took part in a Stone Age to Iron Age workshop and were able to handle artefacts from long ago, including a bronze axe which was thousands of years old! The children learnt about and handled early Stone Age tools like a hammer stone, tools made from bone and antlers, plus a flint scraper and arrowhead. They saw iron jewellery and a spearhead.
Later, the class enjoyed a craft session where they created their own clay pot based on the style of the pottery brought by ‘The Beaker’ people during the Neolithic/Bronze Age. The children practised different skills and used a range of tools to create patterns on their very own pot.
The day was rounded off with a trip to the gift shop and a great day was had by all!
