This morning P5/6 went back in time 2000 years to the Iron Age. Chris Dyer from the Amenity Trust showed us round Scatness. We started in the visitor centre, where he talked to us about Shetland’s history. We completed a jigsaw puzzle, which had a timeline from the Stoneage to present day.
He also explained to us how housing has changed through the ages. Chris had lit a peat fire in the middle of the reconstructed wheelhouse and we all enjoyed going into it and hearing more about life in the Iron Age. After that we went for a look at other houses on the site and saw the broch.
We finished off by playing a really good Viking game called Kubb.
A big thank you to all our adult helpers too!
