Year 3 visit to Butser Ancient Farm

What an amazing trip!

We learnt so much from the Stone Age all the way to the Romans. There were lots of different homes for us to explore and see how they changed over many years. They were dark, smelly and only warm when the fire was lit.

In the morning, we did an archaeological dig where we found lots of interesting items. After this, we got to make our own mozaics in groups. It was a lovely sunny day so we got to complete this activity outside too.

We had a picnic lunch and then got to feed the goats. In the distance we could even see some Iron Age sheep which are very rare.

After lunch, we worked as two tribes to create our own wattle fence. We would love to have this at our school! Thank you to Mrs Mills and Mrs Jones for being such brilliant helpers. 

Our last activity of the day was to create some jewelry in the style of the Romans. Many of us wore our ring, bracelet or earring home.

Thank you to our parents for letting us go on an amazing trip. We were beautifully behaved and were excellent Wyke role models.
