I have to admit at the start of the week my knowledge of the Stone Age was limited; now, thanks to Year 3 pupils I know an awful lot more and I can relate some characteristics about ‘early man’ with Stoneygate life today…and I’m not talking about our table manners!

Early man had to show great perseverance- winters were cold and they had to work as a team in order to find food.  Our sports teams this week certainly showed grit and determination in the cold weather; I was particularly impressed with the U13’s netball team, who despite going behind to Maidwell, pulled the game back and went on to win.  Congratulations to other teams this week against Brooke Priory and Wellingborough…please see our Facebook for details.

Neolithic man settled into communities and gathered for social occasions.  On Wednesday evening there were certainly no Neanderthals present at the ‘SSA quiz and Curry Evening’.  Humour, excellent general knowledge and good food were in abundance.  I would like to congratulate the staff team who thoroughly deserved their victory and I promise they did not have access to the questions prior to the event!

Cave drawings are evidence that ‘Early man’ was not only a hunter, but he was also a fine artist.    Year 3 have produced some outstanding artwork on their topic.




Stone Age man could not read; pupils at Stoneygate can and thanks to the generosity of the parents following ‘the Book Fair’, school has been able to purchase many new books for the library…pupils do look out for them, they should be on the shelves next week.

Enjoy the weekend,
