3LB and 3RB had a fantastic day at Stonehenge on 4th February. The education centre provided a variety of worthwhile workshops and the children practised map skills, handled artefacts and discovered lots about archaeology.
The Neolithic huts were the backdrop for some practical skills workshops in bread making, rope construction and fence building. Stonehenge monument gave the children an insight into the past where they were able to consolidate their knowledge of rocks and stones in science, learnt facts about astronomy and formed their own opinions about the mystery of the sarcen and blue stone circle.
All the children were impeccably behaved and the education leaders commented that they were a credit to Portsmouth schools.
We are communicating with Stonehenge and Lucketts travel to enable 3WM and 3HS to rearrange their visit and will let you know further details as soon as possible.
Many thanks to all the parent helpers who contributed lots to the success of the day and thank you to all the parents who managed to get to school an hour and a half earlier than a normal day!
