Year 3 Visit to Butser Ancient Farm

Previous StoryNext Story

The Year 3 children had a great time visiting Butser Ancient Farm during the Autumn term.

They gained a true insight into what life was like as a Stone Age child through a variety of interactive adult-led sessions. During the morning, the children learnt how to build a fence using large sticks from trees and in the afternoon they made good-luck charms by carving pictures into stones and colouring them with foliage. The children also had a chance to be archaeologists and found lots of interesting artefacts in the dig site. They then matched them to identification boards, these included; teeth, animal skulls and oyster shells. The children had a great day and even the rain couldn’t dampen their enjoyment and excitement at the end of the day.
