YEar 3 trip to Butser Farm

22nd September 2021
Year 3 were thrilled to visit Butser Ancient Farm, near Chichester, this week. It was fascinating to learn more about how people lived during the Stone Age and Bronze Age periods of history in such a practical, hands on way. We were welcomed inside a traditional early Stone Age house; worked as a class team to try wattling; carved flint and chalk to make decorative ornamental pieces; used natural fibres in a cordage workshop and then went on an archaeological dig to uncover artefacts which may have held clues to unlocking the past.
