Year 3 enjoyed a trip out to Flag Fen Archaeology Park. It is home to a unique ancient wooden monument; a kilometre long wooden causeway and platform which are perfectly preserved in the wetland. 3300 years ago this was built and used by the Prehistoric fen people as a place of worship and ritual. 60,000 upright timbers and 250,000 horizontal planks are buried under the ground along with many swords and personal items given as offerings to the watery fen. The children did lots of activities and investigated life during the Bronze Age.

 

What a success Engineering Week 2018 was!  On Monday morning, Miss Priestley launched the week with an assembly and the children left feeling full of excitement and enthusiasm for the mystery projects that awaited them.....all week the children worked on different problems to solve from making structures to protect Humpty Dumpty to building Marble Maze Runs for the Queen of the Greek Gods!  The children in KS1 and KS2 had a wonderful time investigating, planning, discussing, building, tweaking and showing great teamwork.  At the end of the week we had a ‘Grand Exhibition’ where over a hundred family members came into school to look at the amazing things the chidren had been doing during the week.  A huge thank you to TOPs for organising and hosting the refreshments and the activities in the hall and also to amazing engineers; Mr and Mrs Charnley for running some workshops for Year 4 and Year 2 during the week. Mr Charnley worked with Year 4 on bridge construction and Mrs Charnley ran a design workshop focussed around shoes. It was both enriching and inspirational for our children so thank you very much for your time.
