Trip To The Ard

This year, in November, p5,6&7 had several trips to the Ard because of their new topic, from the book ”Wolf Brother”

The book tell, how people lived in Mesolithic times, but more precisely tell the story of a boy named Torak, who was forced to survive there alone after his father died!

When we went there for first time, we were divided into 4 clans with 5 people each. The clans were: the seal clan, the swan clan, the snake clan, and the wolf clan! There were five different types of people and activities in the clans, who are: leader, story teller, warrior, medic and hunter.

There were different challenges and games, which we made up.  Some of them were:  to make our clan base, to make ours flags, to make some small boat, to make a cave paint, and other.  Finally, we had a war between the clans, in which we had to take the flags of the other clans, without touching us.

We learn a lot of thing about Mesolithic time, and how the people actually survive, with not enough food, clothes or home!
