7 Oct 16

Year Three had a fabulous day on Wednesday when they went exploring at Grimes Graves.  Grimes Graves is the only Neolithic flint mine open to visitors in Britain. Highlights of the day included descending a steep ladder, 30 feet into one of the pits. There were layers of rocks dating back millions of years and evidence of tunnelling. The children discovered what it must have been like for Stone Age man to mine the flint using a deer antler as a pick.  Running up and down the lunar looking landscape outside also proved to be great fun.  The deep holes are evidence of a further 400 mines that had been partially filled in.

It was a great day of fun, exploring and learning
