Rebuilding Stonehenge!

We have been learning about Stonehenge in our topic sessions and children were fascinated to discover just how long and how difficult this incredible structure would have been to construct.

Did you know......

  • some of the stones were brought to the site from over 240 miles away?
  • the sarsen stones were over four metres high, two metres wide and weighed up to 30 tonnes?
  • the stones in the middle were arranged in a horseshoe shape?
  • at the centre was a stone called the Altar Stone?

Below are some photos of our 'Stonehenge in the making'. We were very proud to share some of our knowledge and of course our model as part of our Harvest assembly - it was during the New Stone Age that people began farming, moving  away from hunting and gathering.
