Chysauster Ancient Village-Autumn 1

This week the class spent a morning exploring the ancient village of Chysauster. We imagined what life would have been like for the small community during the Iron Age and how that changed during the Romano-British period.

The children applied their knowledge of prehistory to try and imagine what would have been in the rooms of the ancient ruins.

Penlee House– Autumn 1

During our trip to Penlee House we were tested on our knowledge of the periods of pre-history, wore Neolithic tunics and looked at ancient artefacts that have been discovered in the area by archaeologists. In the afternoon we made copper coin badges and coil pottery.
