During the enquiry pupils will have opportunities through the application and analysis of a wide range of historical skills and resources to:
• Describe the ways of life which are typically associated with the Stone Age period of history and identify and give reasons for those which are likely to be accurate and those that are anachronisms – simply could not have occurred then;
• Recognise that the Stone Age in Britain is a period of prehistory which began when the first modern humans arrived in Britain between 850,000 and 950,000 years ago and ended approximately 4,500 years ago with the beginning of the Bronze Age;
• Describe and explain how archaeologists use a great variety of artefacts, including monuments, to try to understand how ancient Britons lived during the Stone Age;
• Recognise, describe and compare and contrast the difference between historical facts (what we know for certain) and historical supposition (assumptions we make about the actions of people and events without certain knowledge or evidence);
• Identify, describe, compare and contrast and explain some of the important ways in which life for ancient Britons changed during the Stone Age.
