P4/5 have been learning how, during the Neolithic, people started to move away from being hunter-gatherers and started farming.  They began to build permanent homes.  They worked in groups to build models of Skara Brae as well as Iron Age hillforts, roundhouses and crannogs.

P4/5 have been finding out about the work of archeologists and how they go about finding evidence of the past.  They took part in a mini dig, tried to reassemble bits of old pottery and dissected a Stone age poo to find out what people ate long ago.
