Classes 6, 7 & 8  Trip to Stonehenge

Classes 6, 7 & 8  Trip to Stonehenge


On Monday 8th January Lower Key Stage 2 went on a trip to Stonehenge to support and inspire them for their learning in the spring terms.  The sun shone on the way there and the children and adults were in good spirits. The children split into year groups, some went to the very informative museum while others made their way to the stones. After lunch the groups swapped and the children learned about the tools and weapons used in the Stone and Bronze Ages and what the structure of Stonehenge may have been used for. We learned how History is sometimes just detective work using evidence from archaeological finds. We had a wonderful time. A big thank you to all the Governors, Parents and Staff who made the trip possible.
