Hunting for clues
We used different sources to become archaeologists, hunting for clues about The Stone Age. We discussed how there is a lack of clues/evidence because the Stone Age was prehistoric (pre-history - before records), meaning nobody is or can be 100% sure about life during this time period. Analysing the different sources, we compared their accuracy and effectiveness whilst learning opinions can be different about evidence and it’s ok for historians to say ‘we don’t really know exactly but we think...’
What are we learning about?
The class were given pictures as historical clues. Like archaeologists, they had to investigate, identify and enquire as to what things might be, what life might have been like and how things may have been used that they could see in the picture.
We discovered the first settlers were during THE STONE AGE.
Investigating Ordnance Survey symbols
Given a map of Hartshill and a key of OS map symbols, we scoured the local area, identifying different features from our local area.
In Geography, we have investigated human and physical features around the UK and Hartshill, including exploring the different rivers in and around the Midlands and those closest to home, such as the River Anker.
