Friday 19th October – Y3 Bronze Age Workshop

Filed under: History,Year 3 @ 1:35 pm

On Friday 19th October, Year 3 had a special visitor. Paul Nolan, who writes books about different times in history, held a workshop for the children about the Bronze Age. The children had great fun learning about the methods used to move huge stones and had to work together as a team. Paul explained how the stones were positioned so that the sun would shine through the gaps between them at different times of the day.

They also learned about making bronze by heating tin and copper. The children also acted out being a fire and heating the tin and copper the right temperature to form bronze.

Some of the children dressed up to act out a funeral ceremony. Mrs Peach and Mrs Glasspool had to carry the ‘body’ in the funeral procession.
