(Based on one class / approx 30 children)

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

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

During a den building activity it was great to see how quieter children showed their capacity for leadership and imagination.  The activities Sam delivered were engaging, challenging and required teamwork plus led to some good writing afterwards.

Nicola Welsh, Middlestone Moor 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 has organised a number of community learning events with me. He is very organised and plans great learning experiences for adults and children.  Children and their carers raved about the cooking on the fire and the fauna identification activities in their evaluations.  I would highly recommend a Sam Jackson led event at any school.

Helen Grainger, Esh Winning Primary

Sam is absolutely fantastic at what he does and we consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have him as part of our team! The children adore their time with him and his weekly Forest School sessions are so engaging, even the staff look forward to donning their waterproofs and wellies to join in (muddy puddles and all)! Over the past few years, we have used SC.OUT.ED to deliver sessions, both in and out of school, and the response from children, staff and parents has always been phenomenal…and the children can’t stop talking about their learning with a huge smile (what more could we ask for?!). If you are looking for highly-skilled practitioners to enhance your curriculum offer with exciting & challenging outdoor learning opportunities, look no further than SC.OUT.ED; we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them!
