This year Year 6 children have had an opportunity to butcher a deer and prepare it for cooking. This was the first time we have done this and it was wonderful to see how carefully the children worked, using stone age tools to prepare their food. All of our children learnt about the anatomy of the deer and how every part of the animal can be used to survive.
There was an opportunity to do some bronze casting and the children made an axe and arrowheads.
Gutting and cooking fish over the cave fire has become the norm as this was our third consecutive year with the wonderful Stone Age visitors!
We hosted other schools from South Essex and from Lambourne Primary School, which was excellent too - sharing the excitement!
