Year 4: Butser Farm Trip

October 5, 2021 all-day

As part of our Long, Long Ago topic, Year 4 will be visiting Butser Ancient Farm in Hampshire. The farm is an exact replica of an Iron Age settlement and we will spend the day undertaking Stone and Iron Age activities (making jewellery, wattling fences etc…). We will use our experiences back in class to form the basis of a non-chronological report writing unit in literacy and to kick start our learning about the Iron Age.

Your child will require a packed lunch and a snack to have on arrival. If you are not entitled to free school meals but would like your child to have a packed lunch from school please order one by calling the school office. All of the activities are outdoors and the farm recommend old warm clothes, warm footwear and a waterproof coat.

Children will need to be in school at 8.00am to be registered before we get on the coach. We will not be able to delay the coach for any latecomers. We will be back at school at approximately 4.30-5pm, dependent on traffic.
