Tuesday 4th February 2020


Today Year 3 went on a school trip to Butser Ancient Farm to learn more about our history topic of the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. When we arrived, we spent some time in a roundhouse learning more about Stone Age people lived. We sat on logs and animal skins and were warmed by the open fire in the middle of the house.

We then took part in 4 different activities to learn more; firstly we learnt how the made string from plants and reeds. The children made pendents from reed and beads.

For our second activity, we turned into archaeologists and learnt how to find artefacts underground. The children really enjoyed this part of the day and found so many exciting treasures.

After lunch we learn how to build a wall using a wattling technique of weaving wood and then created some Stone Age art using flint to carve into chalk and created a green coloured paint using leaves.

 

We had a fantastic day and the children came home full of new facts and experiences.
