Stone Age on a Budget

We understand many schools do not have huge amounts to spend, so we have a Stone Age experience affordable for any school.

Our Mini-workshop is still hands-down better than the others out there. 

It simply doesn't have the costs associated with setting up a huge display or cave.

 

..Because slots for our Stone Age Cave Extravaganza and Stone Age in your Classroom experiences get booked up quickly, this workshop is often taken as a last resort but quickly surprises the teachers at its comprehensive coverage of Stone Age activities.

 

 

The quality of this workshop is every bit as high as our other Stone Age school experience, the reason it is budget is that there are no overnight costs, no set-up (and takedown) costs, and it features 1 Stone Age expert instead of 2.

This means we can tailor-make this experience to suit all of your Stone Age topic requirements!!!


This is where we differ from our competition. Our experiences are not led by actors or jobbing historians in fancy dress "caveman" attire.

 

Our team are all prehistoric experts with the skills and abilities needed to survive.

 

Our outfits and props are not bought, they are made by us using the same techniques as would have been used thousands of years ago, some of our props are original stone age artefacts!!

Dear Twig and Ochre,

I decided to write to you for giving us the best day of my life, thank you.  
When you let us get up I saw the deer leg you used for a sewing kit.

I was mesmerised when I saw the fire and we said "fire brother come!" and it was a real fire!!!

My favourite part was when we held a pheasant because although I loved holding the pheasant I didn't think (realise) it was real.

 

But thank you for the best experience yet.

"Thank you for such a brilliant day with our children at Gorseland School. The children learnt so much in a variety of ways, not just about Stone Age people but respecting animals and an unexpected for us was not to judge people by their appearance.

 

Some children were initially a little apprehensive, but you were so friendly which lead to a discussion about people looking different and therefore being open-minded.

Lots of teachers also brought their classes around for a peek and said this is what we should be doing so much more of.  Your visit had a great ripple effect and by far exceeded our expectations.  We have passed your details onto another school who have already booked with you and we will certainly be booking you again next year!" (Gorseland School)

A wonderful range of Stone Age activities all in one fantastic educational experience
 

A demo of flint knapping will hopefully yield an artefact for your class to treasure, and an understanding of how ancient tools were made.

 

Children will try their hand at scraping hides using Stone Age tools, other tasks may include;

-Processing animal tendons and plant fibres to make string

-Shaping bone and Antler

-Stone Age show and tell

-Q and A session

-Stone Curriculum subjects such as Wolf Brother

Depending on the length of the session, and the possibilities of your school grounds, we can venture out and look at some of the local plant life through the eyes of a forager, spot the telltale signs of wildlife and look at one or two traps.

 

Where we have 30 children for the whole day we can also look at hunting and music, recreating a hunting ceremony complete with prehistoric instruments and dancing.

This can all be tailored for your needs so please ask during your enquiry.

Our visits include access to our teacher resources, including videos, worksheets and cross-curricular activities
