Stonehenge and Avebury Stone Circle

Yesterday we went on a Home Education group field trip to Stonehenge. Hannah had never been before and was amazed at how big the stones were. She was very interested to hear that some of the stones came all the way from Wales where her grandparents live, and tried to imagine how ancient man could have transported them there. 

Stonehenge doesn't actually take that long to visit, so afterwards we, and a couple of other families that we are friends with, drove on to Avebury Stone Circle. The children loved it at Avebury, as they were able to touch the stones and investigate them properly. The circle is set around a village, amongst meadow grasses and sheep, and so perfect for 3 little girls and a little boy to play, explore and run around, and around, and around.
