Discovering the cave of Lascaux…

As part of our topic, we have been exploring life during the Stone Age. In English this week, we read a story about a group of boys in France who stumbled upon an ancient cave, a cave that hadn’t been seen by anyone since the first inhabitants used it…in the Stone Age! The cave was filled with vibrant cave paintings of bison, cows and bears that were first drawn around 10000 years ago!

To help us empathise with the character in this story and consider their thoughts, feelings and motives, we created some drama of the moment the boys discovered the cave…

Class 9 – how do you think these boys felt when they stumbled upon this cave? What thoughts were running through their mind?
