Prehistory school trips

Stone Age, Iron Age, and Bronze Age Britain

A relatively new and incredibly popular subject to the National Curriculum for Primary Schools is the subject area of Prehistory. On the following page we will take a look at what time period constitutes Prehistory, what was happening in the UK during this time, and most importantly, we will discuss the types of Prehistory school trips and outreach projects that are available to UK schools at Key Stage 1 and 2.

The period known as Prehistory is generally seen as the time before written records were made and kept. For us here in the UK, this means the people who inhabited our islands before the Romans arrived: The people of the Iron Age; The Bronze Age; and the Stone Age.

Although it is true that the further back in time we go, the less information we have to read about and the fewer examples we have to look at, there is still a wealth of information available to school children, and to help teachers add value to their prehistory topics.

Stone Age Workshops



During this Drama Hut Workshop we meet 'Sally', our enthusiastic archaeologist! She leads the children as they travel back in time to explore The Stone Ages, discovering how it developed from the chaotic to the domestic, in a fun, interactive session

Guided by Sally, our enthusiastic archaeologist, through improvisation, role play and poetry, the children will travel back in time to explore this fascinating prehistoric period, discovering how it developed from the chaotic to the domestic. During the workshop, the children will create pictures from The Stone Age in order to get a sense of the start, middle and end of this period. In pairs, they will explore and vocalise how 'First Humans' may have communicated with one another and using pictures for inspiration, create a Stone Age timeline. We will invite you to the Stone Age ‘Dragon’s Den’ and discuss what would have been a useful invention of the time, whilst Imagining life in a Stone Age settlement! ...

Ask most children about British History and the first people they can tell you about in any detail are the Romans. The National Curriculum is now taking aim at this knowledge gap by encouraging teachers to focus on the people who lived here before the Roman invasion. While the nature of politics inevitably leads to fairly regular changes to what teachers are required to teach, some changes are bigger than others, and for primary school teachers, this is quite a shake up to the teaching of history.

Stone Age School Trips

A great way to help your class to understand the various aspects of prehistory is to take advantage of the venues and outreach programmes available. Children develop a better understanding of a subject if they can see and touch it. To aid this, museums can offer helpful visual stories alongside examples of the Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic stone tools of the early hunter gatherers who made the UK, as it was, their home.

Bronze Age School Visits

By around 2,500 BC inhabitants were moving into what we call the Bronze Age. This was a time where tools started to be made out of metals rather than stone and when our famous monuments such as Stonehenge were constructed, along with barrows and cairns. While day to day life is difficult to study, schools can look at migration patterns and trade.

Iron Age for Schools

The Iron Age began around 800 BC and lasted until the Roman Conquest. The use of iron in tools and weapons is the main distinguishing feather of this time period, which also saw the spread of Celtic languages and increased interaction with continental Europe.
