Green Class Visitors to talk about Stonehenge

On Wednesday, we welcomed Mr. and Mrs. Edwards to school, who used to volunteer at Stonehenge. 


They talked to Year 3 about the importance of Stonehenge, thinking about how it was formed, when it was built and why it was formed.  The children got to handle replica artefacts and discuss their ideas. 


At the end of the afternoon, they re-enacted a Neolithic burial, looking at the objects that would have been buried with important and influential chieftains in the barrows surrounding the henge.  


Many thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Edwards for giving up your time to talk to the children, they had a very enjoyable and informative afternoon.
