Stewed Fruit

The children in Year 3 have been learning about how the cave men and women from the Stone Age gathered food and have thought about the types of food they might have eaten and how they would have cooked it.

The children spent the morning in the Forest Schools area this week and had a taste of some stewed fruit that the cave men and women may have eaten. The children got to experience cooking the fruit on a real open fire, they gathered leaves and moss and mud to create a comfortable seating area around the fire before tasting the stewed fruit for themselves. The children then used their left over fruit to write their initials on some wood like cave paintings.
