Year 3’s trip to the Creswell Crags caves and museum has certainly helped to inspire the children to say ‘goodbye’ to their study of the dinosaurs and ‘hello’ to the Stone Age. 

Creswell Crags is a spectacular magnesian limestone gorge that is dotted with a large number of caves, fissures and rock shelters, many of which harboured secrets from our Prehistoric past.  

Throughout an exhilarating day, the children were able to delve into the mysteries of Stone Age life.  They experienced life in a cave, learned how to build a shelter, gleaned tracking and hunting skills and even attempted to build and light a fire, just as our ancient ancestors would have done.

Everyone was fascinated to study the artefacts in the archaeological museum and worked in teams to piece together animal skeletons.
