On Tuesday Year 3 ventured over to Chiltern Open Air Museum, where we were immersed in Iron Age life. We spent time in a real-life round house and learnt all about how they are made and what materials they used. We then took part in lots of different activities, such as making clay pots, whisking cream to make butter, grinding wheat to make flour using 2 huge round sandstones and then we turned the flour into bread. We met NikNak who was our Iron Age guide and taught us so many interesting facts about daily life. Did you know they dug a hole in the ground which they used as a fridge to keep their milk and cream cold?
In the afternoon, we became archaeologists. We carried out our own dig to find hidden treasure, along with learning more about how important archaeology is when learning about the past.
Every member of our class was incredible and represented our school values throughout the whole day.
A big thank you to our volunteers, Mrs Dickinson and Mr Brown for coming with us and we hope you had as much fun as we did!
