This term, year 3 looked at Iron age as our topic for the term. To climax our learning and to help the children relate the theory to a bit of hands-on experience, we visited the Andover Iron age museum last week. The children were fortunate enough to travel back in time to Danebury Hillfort to visit a tribe and were allowed to explore and touch their most expensive jewellery, artefact and a few tools. We managed to travel back to the 2ist century early enough for everyone to go home safely.

This week Wagtails and Hawks have been creating some wonderful paintings of Stonehenge as part of our Stone Age topic. We are very proud of their attention to detail. Well done Year 3.

As part of our topic for this term, we have been learning about Stonehenge. Although archaeologists have found out many things about the site, it remains a mystery and there are many unanswered questions. Why was it built? Who built it? What did early man do there? How did they move the enormous stones so many miles?

Stonehenge took about 1500 years to build, so Hawks and Wagtails decided to save time and build it out of biscuits. We started by mixing green icing as grass. Chocolate bourbons made excellent trilithons, and we took turns to balance them carefully with icing as glue, then arranged them in a horseshoe shape. It was rather like playing Jenga – a steady hand was vital!  Early man brought the blue stones from Pembrokeshire in Wales, but ours came from Lidl and thankfully were not quite as heavy as the four ton originals.

Once Stonehenge was built, we admired our work -briefly – then took photos so you can see our masterpiece.

Hope you like them as much as we did.
