Year 3 pupils from Warlingham Village School got in touch with their inner Flintstone recently as they hosted a Stone Age-themed assembly for the rest of their school and their families.
As part of an entertaining and informative display, children – all in home-made costumes - talked about and demonstrated some of the differences of everyday life in pre-historic and modern times.
Pupils at the school, a member of the GLF Schools multi-academy trust, also contrasted some of the alternative activities their ancestors may have used to pass their time – such as making their own tools rather than relying on gadgets, and threading necklaces of animal bones and teeth rather than listening to iPods.
“The children put in a great effort for a really enjoyable show, but they also got to share all that they had been learning about the era with the audience,” said Miss Mills, the classteacher. “It was definitely informative as well as good bit of fun for everyone.”
As well as performing, the children got to the chance to display their examples of cave paintings that they had created. Miss Mills added “from what they have learnt in their Stone Age studies, I hope they appreciate how lucky they are to be living in the modern age!”
