YOUNGSTERS at a Weston school have been going back to the Stone Age to learn how people lived more than 5,000 years ago.

The year three pupils from Windwhistle Primary School in Kingsley Road have also been studying rocks and fossils in their science class.

The two topics were combined so they could enjoy an ancient treat or two by baking some Stone Age bread and rock cakes.

The youngsters wrote instructions on how to make them and compared their methods to how people from the Stone Age cooked.

They then enjoyed eating their cakes and bread.
