Our history topic has been When did inventions begin? Was Stone Age man hunter gatherer or farmer? We discussed these questions at the beginning and the end of our topic. The children made some brilliant contributions to our discussion. We discussed evidence archaeologists have found about the Stone Age, looking at Skara Brae and Star Carr finds, considering how they have been preserves. We studied the development of farming over time, gently dug up bones from sand, making sure we didn't damage anything and linked up our history, science and literacy by writing newspaper reports about our pretend discoveries, having looked at similar articles from various newspapers.
