Bluebirds were fascinated to learn all about Stonehenge this afternoon and took a virtual tour of the site.
They were amazed at both at the size and the construction of Stonehenge and how people used two types of stone.
The children were asked what they thought Stonehenge was used for when it was first built.
Here are some of their clever ideas:
Alexander R – It was built for shelter.
Yusuf – It is a timeline.
Sam – A monument for a person.
Tatenda – They made it to represent the Stone Age.
Reva – It looks like a clock to tell the time.
Charlie thought it was an animal trap of some kind.
The children then went on to discovered it was used for healing, worship and burial. It shows us that in the Stone Age, people believed in worshipping Gods including sun gods.
