Year 4: Trip to Butser Ancient Farm, Hampshire

November 6, 2017 all-day

On Monday 6th November, 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 old VERY warm clothes. All of the activities are outdoors and the farm recommend tracksuit bottoms or pyjamas under trousers, two pairs of socks, hats, gloves, scarves and warm footwear. Your child will also need a waterproof coat/jacket and 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.
