Linking to their current Topic theme of ‘Stone Age to the Iron Age’, Year 3 and 4 went on an exciting trip to Stonehenge. Whilst there they attended an outdoor workshop where they were able to learn lots of interesting new facts. The children also had the opportunity to look at the stones, finding out about how they have changed over time. They really enjoyed linking what they saw back to the learning they have been doing throughout their Topic sessions so far.
After learning a lot more about the stones and their aging process over time, Year 3 and 4 captured the magic of Stonehenge in some brilliant sketches. After lunch, they took part very enthusiastically in the fascinating workshop, which included: identifying Neolithic and Bronze Age objects; visiting a reconstructed Neolithic house; learning about Stone Age tools and weapons; and exploring theories about why Stonehenge was built and how the stones were transported. A very enjoyable and educational day out for all.
