We had a fabulous morning at Swinside stone circle this morning. We explored the stones and considered the different possibilities of how and why the stones were assembled there. The children created their own formal ceremonies. Measurements, sketches and photographs were taken in order to recreate our own mini “clayhenge” in school.
This afternoon Gill Jepson ran a history workshop for years 1,2 and 3, looking at sources of evidence and enquiry skills.
Finally, Gill read from one of her own books to Class 2 and Class 3 and did her book signing for those children who wished to purchase a book. Another productive day!
