Year 3 Trip to Hadleigh Country Park

Year 3 experienced a fantastic day at Hadleigh Country Park on Tuesday 13 March. They were immersed into the day as soon as they arrived and were sent on an archaeological dig to find Roman artefacts. After lunch they entered a Celtic round house and experienced grounding seeds between quern stones in order to make flour. They were also set with the task of identify Roman and Celtic objects.  The children thoroughly enjoyed seeing teachers dress in Celtic warrior clothing and Roman armour, and were amazed at the sheer weight that soldiers had to carry when in battle. The day finished with everyone taking part in many activities including conducting a tortoise formation and working as a team to avoid the paper rocks being flung at them. It was a great day and all the children learnt some interesting facts that will help with their Topic work in school.
