In our history lessons, we have learnt that the Stone Age is part of pre-history, meaning a time before there were any written records.

We have found out that in order for us to know about life in the Stone Age we have to use evidence found by archaeologists and studied carefully by historians. Over the next couple of weeks, we will look at some of the different artefacts and monuments that have been left behind.

In today’s lesson, we studied some cave paintings that have been found all over the world and looked closely to see what we could find out about life back then. We then enjoyed getting stuck in and creating our own cave paintings (sorry for the colourful hands, faces and uniforms that came home) but the children did a superb job!
