PUPILS from The Royal School’s Prep 3 Girls’ class and Boys’ class joined forces to embark on a fascinating trip to Butser Ancient Farm. They have been learning about prehistoric Britain in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age and this ancient farm provided lots of activities for the children to try.

One highlight was the archaeological dig where the children were thrilled to uncover a vast array of bones and flints.

They also enjoyed the clunching. One pupil said:"It meant we knew how they made some buildings back then. On the other hand, it meant we got very messy."

The children also tried their hand at chalk carving, cordage and fed the ancient breeds of sheep and goats and were impressed there was a four horned sheep.

The children returned to the Haslemere school bursting with fascinating facts and a wonderful day was enjoyed by all.
