Year 3 Flag FenJenny
On the 22nd November, the children in Year 3 went to Flag Fen in Peterborough for the day. They learnt all about Prehistoric Britain. The children were able to place different time zones on a time line and gain a firm understanding of when people started to roam the earth. After that, the children made their own clay pots using natural materials that they would find on their walks. During the trip, the children went to look at real life Bronze Age boats and a Bronze Age bridge. Ilja said, “This is an amazing experience!” children were amazed to see things that had been dug up that are more than 3000 years old. Lastly, the children went into a real Bronze Age round house and all the children listened to a legend story from prehistoric times. All the children made a wish and they really enjoyed the experience. Everyone had an amazing day!
The ladies at Flag Fen said that our children were amazing and a credit to the teachers and the school. With wonderful behaviour and outstanding knowledge of the prehistoric top, they were all involved and willing to take part in the hands on activities.
