Investigating Long Barrows around Stonehenge

30 October 2019


Class 3 talked about what they thought life would have been like 4500 years ago, at the time that Stonehenge was constructed.  They discussed the inventions that Neolithic man wouldn’t have had such as; electricity, cars, internet, factories and computers.  They then talked about the things that they would have had such as; stone, flint, animal bones, rope made from plants and leather.

Next the children read an information leaflet about the West Kennet long barrow and fed-back facts they had found out about it to the rest of the class.  As groups they then made one of the burial chambers before putting them together to make the complete West Kennet long barrow.
