Year 4 trip to Kinver Edge
Yesterday Year 4 had a fantastic trip to Kinver Edge for a stone age to iron age workshop. The children completed an adventurous countryside walk to explore where the hill fort would have been and literally walked where iron age people would have walked. This allowed a clear understanding of how difficult it was to live in those times, carrying water down from the river up to the village at the top of the hill. They also learnt that the trading would take place down by the river too. While walking the children explored the environment by looking at the hazel and willow which was used for weaving (which the children completed in the workshops). The guide also made links to science and explained about the rocks and soils, identifying sedimentary rock. In the workshops the children explored flint, clay pots (thumb, coil and coin) and created their own fences through weaving.
