On Tuesday this week, Year 3 ventured off to Stonehenge. We visited this stone circle because it is linked to our theme.
Firstly, we went on the minibuses for one hour to get to our destination. We arrived at ten o'clock for our tour around the huge sparkly stones. Some interesting guides called Margaret and Robin told us about them and the landscape around us. Some interesting facts are:
Ten minutes later, we ran across a field to a Bronze Age burial site. Then we performed a pretend burial ritual on Maude! She had to lie down on a mat curling up. We gave her things for the afterlife such as a Beaker pot, amber necklace, bronze knife, a bow protector and gold plaque. Our interesting leaders told us to make up a chant about Stonehenge and how we felt. After that, we sang the imaginative chants all the way back to the gate.
Next, we returned for a delicious packed lunch. The final activities were looking around the fascinating exhibition centre to find out about Stone Age artefacts and to look at the Celtic roundhouses.
In the end, it started raining heavily but luckily it was the end of the trip and we hopped on the buses and headed back to school.
Everybody enjoyed the brilliant trip to Stonehenge.
