Dolphin’s trip to Flag FenFishtoft Academy
On Monday the Dolphin class had an educational visit to Flag Fen at Peterborough to learn about the Stone Age. This was a great opportunity to explore and experience life from Stone Age to Iron Age. We were all very excited to go. It was a long journey on the coach (although we thoroughly enjoyed it) and very worthwhile. When we got there we had a guided tour of the prehistoric site (which was amazing) and we were told all about the Stone Age. We handled real and replica objects. We also made and decorated our own clay pots based on prehistoric examples. But best of all we sat in a real ancient roundhouse with a fire lit in the middle and listened to an amazing story about a magic sword. We all listened with carefully with great interest and then at the end of the story we were shown the magnificent magic sword. The Dolphins were entranced. The trip provided real educational experiences for the children whilst having lots of fun. A fabulous time was had by all. All children were excellently behaved and fully engaged in all activities. The Dolphins represented Fishtoft superbly. We will now build upon this learning experience in the classroom as we have our very own Stone Age den, complete with our own sword and axes which we returned with.
