Heysham Barrows
Heysham Barrows trip

On 23rd March Bleasdale Class visited Heysham Barrows to look for older buildings from an early time period. This has strong links with the subjects they have been focusing on in class, which is on archaeology from Stone Age – Iron Age. During the visit they participated in lots of walking, having discussions about the older buildings and this led onto the students reflecting on traces left behind from previous structures and the layers of ground being older because of how low they sit in the ground. After this we visited Half Moon Bay Beach to excavate some sea class and to collect stones in preparation for painting them once back at school. Whilst on the beach they made some stone structures, which they enjoyed! On the way back we dropped off our collection for the Ukraine appeal.
