Building Stonehenge and Skara Brae in Maple class

Maple class have a great time exploring how Stonehenge and Skara Brae were built.  We have been learning about the different types and sizes of stones that were used by our ancestors to build Stonehenge.  There was lots of discussion about how such a huge monument was built to exact measurements without the use of modern technology.

The following week the class learned about the stone-built Neolithic settlement of Skara Brae which still stands today on Orkney.  The class enjoyed imagining what life was like living in such a remote and wild place with limited materials to build with (stone and wood!).

Unfortunately our plasticine models didn't quite stand the test of time!
