Yr3 trip to Stonehenge

On Thursday 27th September, as part of our History topic on 'Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age' Year 3 visited Stonehenge. The visit brought to life all that the children had been learning in their History lessons about Stone Age and what an incredible feat of team work and engineering it was in constructing this site. Whilst walking around the monument the children got a real sense of the importance and significance of Stonehenge and the area surrounding it. The children were able to see the tools and methods used in the construction, displayed in the Visitor Centre, as well as experiencing what it would be like sitting in the centre of Stonehenge during the different seasons in an audio-visual 360 degree video experience. The children also had an opportunity to explore the homes of the Neolithic people.
