This terms festival has focused on learning about Stonehenge in conjunction with summer solstice.

 

Summer solstice

• Solstice, or Litha, means a stopping or standing still of the sun

• The summer solstice is the longest day of the year and is celebrated by thousands of pagans across the world. In the northern hemisphere, the solstice usually falls around 21 June

• Stonehenge is believed to have been used as an important religious site by early Britons 4,000 years ago. Recent pagan celebrations at the site began in the 20th Century.

 

 

The children were informed of different facts about the historical monument while constructing each part themselves step by step using clay.

They then concluded with a quiz and will share their learning by presenting their facts to other classes.
