Class trip to Buxton

What an incredible start to our topic, 'How to wash a Woolly Mammoth'! 

Firstly, we visited Buxton Museum to learn all about the Stone Age to the Iron Age. In groups, the children had the opportunity to handle real-life artefacts that have been found in and around the High Peak dating back to the Stone Age.

They listened to the story 'Stone Age Boy' whilst sitting around a campfire then acted out different scenes from the book.

The children enjoyed finding out about the different types of pottery. We found out what they were used for and looked closely at the different shapes and patterns. 

Whilst exploring 'The wonders of the Peak' gallery, we discovered what life was like during the Stone Age to the Iron Age.  

After dinner, we walked over to the Serpentine. The Serpentine used to be a settlement site during the Mesolithic and Neolithic periods. Here we learnt about the type of houses people used to live in and created our own Neolithic long houses.
