Year 3 Visit to Chiltern Open Air Museum

At the beginning of the month, Year 3 visited Chiltern Open Air Museum to experience life in the Stone Age and the Iron Age. We enjoyed every minute; making the most of all the activities on offer! An interesting lady, called Rebecca who was dressed in animal skins, met us at the edge of the woods and took us back in time to the Stone Age. We had to imagine that it was 12,000 years ago! She told us all about her tribe, how they hunt for food, build shelters and make jewellery. We even got the chance to start our own fire using flint and small balls of wool. It was very exciting!  During our session learning about how life had moved on in the Iron Age, we discovered how people had begun to settle in one place, protect their homes, grow crops to eat and, of course, how iron was used in day to day living. We all had a go at grinding wheat and making flatbread, which was cooked on an open fire. A huge thank you to all the Mums that came along to help. You were brilliant sports, and we really appreciate you sparing the time to join us. Please take a look through our photos of, what turned out to be, a truly fantastic day!
