P4/5 Neolithic Orkney Trip


On Monday 6th February, P4/5 went to 4 different Neolithic sites in Orkney as part of the Neolithic Orkney topic. We visited Barnhouse Settlement, the Standing Stones of Stenness, the Ring of Brodgar and Maeshowe.

We were shown around the sites by Sandra, an Orkney Ranger, and she told us lots of information about each place. Phil took us on a tour of Maeshowe that was very interesting, especially as none of us had been in before!

We learnt lots of new facts, particularly about the graffiti at the Ring of Brodgar and the Viking runes at Maeshowe.

When we got back to school, we wrote recounts of our day and also sent thankyou emails to Sandra and Phil from Historic Environment Scotland.
