Yew and Aspen visit Ely Museum

After a drive to Ely, the children looked at the impressive Ely Cathedral on their way to the Museum. At the museum, there was an engaging `mock` archaeological dig where various differently dated artifacts from the stone and bronze ages were looked at with a lively discussion, and a real sense of the range of time covered was evident. A detailed handling session followed with a real insight as to how the use of fire and food supply was done in the prehistoric cultures, the children loved the practical `hands-on` process. Antler carving with flint knives followed as a practical task, really stretching the children! In the afternoon an outstanding basket making session was a real success with very good `fish` basket weave shapes produced by all, a most successful day overall! Mr Slater
