Today Year three were very lucky to go on an intriguing and exciting trip to Creswell Crags in Worksop. We got to go in a real limestone cave (which we have learned in our science topic is a sedimentary rock!) that real Neanderthals used and lived in during the stone age. The children were very excited to see some real flint tools that would have been used for hunting although none of them were keen to trial living in a cave for a day or two! Our lovely guides also took us to the back of the cave where they showed us some examples of the kinds of skeletons that were found in the back of the cave when it was first excavated. The children were very surprised to find out that cave hyena would have lived in Creswell Crags, we were even shown some hyena 'coprolite' (fossilised poo or poo stone) that was found in he caves.
As well as going in the cave we got to practice some traditional survival skills to give us a further insight into the lives of stone age men. Do you like our bender huts?
