Year 3/4 Trip to Butser Farm

Y3/4 Trip to Butser Ancient Farm on the 11th June

This half term, our topic is ‘Rock Your World’. In science, we will be exploring properties of rocks and in history we will be learning about the Stone Age to the Iron Age.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Stonehenge could not go ahead. However, we have found an amazing opportunity for the children to participate in more activities relating to all three time periods (Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age). The children will visit Butser Farm, Hampshire, PO8 0BG and take part in 4 different activities ranging from jewellery making to becoming archaeologists during an excavation.

What to bring

Children must wear their school uniform but can wear trainers as we will be doing lots of walking and the site may be muddy. Children must bring a waterproof coat in case the weather is wet.  

Children will need a rucksack to carry their own water bottle. A packed lunch can be provided so please specify if you would like a school packed lunch or you will provide your own.


Although we are fundraising for the trip and FOSSIES are supporting with the cost of the coaches, the remaining payment is £11 per child.

If you would like to contribute more than £11, there will be an option for this on Parent Pay.
