Stone Age Experience for Prep 4 on Dartmoor

11th November 2014

Prep 4 had a fantastic day out at Heatree Activity Centre in the nearby Dartmoor National Park. Heatree offers young people ‘a range of Outdoor Education Activities including Adventure & Environmental Activities which bring Dartmoor to life.’

After building some Stone Age style shelters our pupils experienced life in the Bronze Age: grinding oats to produce flour for their food, making clay pots and jewellery, and enjoying some old fashioned entertainment by making quoits from willow. Despite the fun we had, I don't think any of them could be persuaded to give up the modern day comforts of centrally heated houses and electronic gadgets for long! Mrs Sutton
