Art in Prehistory 

Activity Overview

A creative journey through a million years of Prehistory Art. The day includes all materials and three artefacts that your pupil will making ready to take home with them.

  • Introduction to the different periods of the Stone Age (Neolithic, Mesolithic and Palaeolithic) and Prehistory (Stone, Bronze and Iron)
  • Visit our Palaeolithic Cave and Cave Painting Art Workshop
  • Introduction on Prehistoric Pottery and “Make Your Own Bronze Age Beaker Pot” Workshop

  • Trade and Barter

Trading has two parts:

  • Part 1: your class will swap real artefacts as they role play as characters and use numerical problem solving in the trading game
  • Part 2: your pupils will enjoy trading by swapping their pocket money for Celtic gold coins to trade for the more precious produce in the shop

“All activities were practical, packed full of historical facts, vocabulary rich! Brilliant!.” Jaclyn Orchant, Little Ealing

All of the activities really helped to engage the children, consolidate what they have learnt and develop their knowledge and understanding.” Amie Macura, Oak Farm

“All activities were interactive and kept the attention of the children: accessible to ALL. Having our Prehistory leader as the expert and “in role” made the whole experience engaging and believable.” Miss Nurse, The Grove
