Residential Day one – Avebury

Last week, Beech class went on their residential trip as a part of their Scavengers and Settlers topic.

On Thursday, we travelled to Avebury Stone Circle. Avebury is a Neothlic monument, it is the biggest circle in Europe and over 4,500 years old.

We walked around the henge looking at the stones, the dyke and avoiding sheep poo!! Our walk around the Stone Circle meant we could appreciate the sheer size of each stone – it was amazing.

We visited the Alexander Keiller Museum. We had a lot of fun reading the information, completing activities and exploring  Stone Age tools.
On our return journey we saw Silbury Hill another Neothlic monument.
