Year 3 build Stonehenge

Year 3 had a great time building their own Stonehenge out of blocks after learning about the various theories as to why Stonehenge was built.  Many were shocked to learn that some of the theories include a calendar, a burial site, a healing place and a concert venue.  As a class we decided that based on the evidence it was more than likely a burial site as there were 150 bodies discovered at the site.

The Year 6 children have had another fabulous day in Rome and have been a credit to St James with their fantastic behaviour. It was a very pleasant day in the Italian capital and everyone had a great time.
