Location: Delivered on site

The Stone Age and Stone Age cooking programme introduces children to not only how people lived and survived this period of history, but also how we can learn from their culinary skills, even today. They will discover examples of some of the foods that were gathered, grown or caught and how it was prepared and cooked through a ‘hands-on’ demonstration and exploration of tools and artifacts.

Activities include:

  • When was the Stone Age…..from the old to the new!
  • Stone Age settlements and houses
  • Fire by friction
  • Handling and discussing Stone Age hunting tools and cooking equipment
  • Preparing, cooking and tasting dishes using Stone Age techniques and skills
  • Looking at how we still use Stone Age cooking today

Studies:

Children will investigate the Stone Age

When was it?
What were their houses like?

Pupils will also prepare, cook and taste Stone Age food and look at how some of the cooking techniques are still used today.

“The frying pan you should give to your enemy. Food should not be prepared in fat. Our bodies are adapted to a Stone Age diet of roots and vegetables” (Burkitt)

What People Say

The session was booked to enhance the children’s imagination – it definitely delivered on this! The day was organised brilliantly and was enjojed by both children and adults….the children were asking when you were coming back for the rest of the week!

Amy Foster, Delves Lane Primary

We wanted a high interest, active day with lots for the children to get stuck into and we got that from Mark. Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design with aspects of Communication and Language were successfully delivered. The delivery and management of the day was very good. Communication beforehand was quick and thorough. We really enjoyed the day, thank you!

Ashleigh Walker, Chopwell Primary

Sam’s session was tailored and linked very well to our rainforests topic.  The session delivered exactly what we hoped it would – the children learnt about adaptations and were able to extend their knowledge in a creative way, at a perfect pace and with a range of activities.  The day was excellently delivered!

Rachel Harmer, Butterknowle Primary

A great hands-on training day – loads of new ideas and I now feel more confident to use the outdoors with children.

Kay Murray, Pelton Community Primary

Over the three sessions, all the children learnt new skills and enjoyed their time outdoors! It gave me increased knowledge and the confidence to plan and to deliver similar activities myself. The original aim, to link to PE and specifically an outdoor and adventurous activity core task, was met – especially on teamworking and cooperation. All the sessions were well planned and organised and they were delivered and managed well. Every activity challenged the children and taught them new skills. It was good to see less confident children have the opportunity to shine too!
