Hunter Gatherers - 2016

Written by  on Monday, 10 October 2016.

As part of our Stone Age topic, Year 3 have been learning about the early Hunter Gatherers and about how they travelled from place to place in search of food to survive.

On Friday 23rd September 2016, we became Hunter Gatherers and decided to make our very own Stone Age breakfast. This involved foraging in the school grounds for fruit to make a yummy fruit stew. We gathered juicy apples, pears, blackberries and a few lucky children found some raspberries too. We had lots of fun and picked heaps of fruit, although we had to be careful not to get pricked by the blackberry brambles. 

After taking the fruit inside, we washed it and learned to chop it using the bridge method. We sweetened the chopped fruit with honey and stewed it to make our Stone Age breakfast. To complete our meal, we also made mint tea with fresh mint leaves before sitting down to have a taste. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to everyone’s liking, with most of the children wanting to stick to their Coco Pops! (Sorry parents, we tried!)

The children had a fantastic day as Hunter Gatherers and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. As our Stone Age topic comes to a close, we know that we will always remember this day.
