Stonehenge Trip

On November 9th, the Year 3 children made the journey all the way to Stonehenge in Salisbury.

We got to see our history learning in action! How did the stones get there? We learned that there are many theories, but the most popular one is that they used logs to roll the stones using string (though we find the alien theory the funniest). We got to try to pull the sarson stones but not even 10 of us could move it an inch. We also went into neolithic houses and laid on the (very uncomfortable) beds they would've slept on. A very helpful volunteer showed us tools from the Stone Age and even let us hold some. We also saw an exhibition where we saw a real skeleton from the Stone Age!
