Brockton turn back time

Ed Abrams from the Living History Hub turned back time for Brockton’s Class 2 recently when they participated in a Stone Age workshop. Children came into the primary school dressed up for the occasion, with some spectacular outfits making an appearance. Ed’s boundless enthusiasm and engaging manner took the children back in time while they made paint from a variety of unexpected materials including charcoal, honey and eggs.

The class designed cave paintings telling tales of the challenging existence of Stone Age people, including stories of hunting. Next there was the opportunity to taste meat from rabbit and pigeon, and soften leather using ‘wee’ (apple juice) and ‘poo’ (chocolate cake mix)! Utilising natural resources from around the school grounds, the class also started to make a willow shelter, adding bracken then wattle and daub – the children are hoping this will be an ongoing project.
