Terrific Timezone

Year 3 had a very exciting visit from the company Timezone this week to kick start our Summer topic of Stone Age through to the Iron Age. Although Timezone have visited Wheelers Lane many times, it is the first time Year 3 have got to experience it a topic day with them. 

We were able to make our own piece of felt using wool and we got to see the process of the fibres combining together. Exploring the different artefacts was pretty incredible! Looking at different bones, clothing, how they lived and the weaponry they had too. In the afternoon, we explored the different methods of working in the Iron Age including spindle wheels and using a niddy noddy. Trying on some of the armour that they would have used in the Iron Age was great too (some of us thought it was far too heavy!)
