Today year 3 learned about the different types of Stone Age houses. They found out that hunter-gatherers from the Mesolithic era built temporary shelters and moved around to find food. These shelters were made of wooden poles in a teepee shape and covered in animal skins. They used ferns, moss and other plants to make a soft, warm floor. At forest school year 3 had a go at building their own temporary shelters!
