Helford class enjoyed a fantastic morning of “survival” for their launch day with the essential question: “Could you survive in a cave?” Pupils were Hunter-gatherers and went on a treasure hunt to find Stone Age food – they discussed if it was possible to eat snails and nettles! Children built a fire with the aid of Mr Long and tried their hand at using a Bow-drill (an ancient method of making fire). We also successfully build a shelter from wood and tarpaulin they found lying around on the field.
In the afternoon we asked questions, made timelines and found out about Lucy the first “human” who is over 3 million years old- found in Africa 40 years ago. See pictures of our exciting day.
