Standing Stones

We are learning about the significance on standing stones in Cornwall. Sitting in a circle gave us a feel of the power that a stone could have, and many children spoke about what it meant for them. Each child found a stone in the school grounds and added it to a class structure, and then was asked to it away. Incredibly, there was a sense of loss.
Katie said that she did not know that there were that many standing stones in Cornwall, and how precious they may have been in the past, especially since I have been to Stonehenge. Stones mean more to me now.
Ethan said that they are special in “many, many, many different ways…they can represent special people that have passed away, and special place. they can be related to cavemen and the Stone Age and the history of people, and the land that they cared about.”
