Amazing Archaelogists!

Class 2 enjoy their history inspired residential to Burwardsley. 

Class 2 have just returned from a fun-filled residential, where they learnt lots about the changes which took place early Britain, thousands of years ago.

 The first day of learning focused on what it would have been like to live as a prehistoric hunter-gatherer during the Stone Age period. The children had the opportunity to make tools such as spears and bow and arrows in order to hunt woolly mammoth and deer. The children had some pretty impressive aims and hunting skills! Then they ground wheat to make dough and cooked it over a fire, which they had built and lit themselves.

On the second day and after (almost) a full night’s sleep; the children enjoyed visiting the Iron Age Roundhouse, making coil clay pots and taking part in an archaeological dig, where they discovered artefacts such as bones, pottery and iron tools. The two days were a fantastic opportunity to bring out history curriculum to life!
