Our poetry paper chain
Over the course of the year, we will be reading poetry from a variety of different authors. We are adding the names of the poems (and their author) to our poetry paper chain. As you can see, the children are enjoying listening to their daily poetry and we have over 40 links in our chain so far! We are excited to see how many links we can achieve over the course of this school year.
Duddon Dig Site Visit
Today, Years 5 and 6 were joined by the children of Captain Shaw's to visit the Duddon Dig site (in the Duddon Valley). We were fortunate enough to be given a guided tour of the site and hear about some of the finds that have been recovered from there. In addition, we were able to participate in an excavation - using the skills we learned at our 'Workshop' in May. We had a fabulous time practicing our archaeological skills and having the opportunity to work with the team at Duddon Dig.
In collaboration with Captain Shaw's School, Years 5 and 6 have taken part in an archaeological workshop. We were able to examine historical artefacts, draw and record archaeological finds and reconstruct damaged artefacts. These skills will be put into practise when we visit the Duddon Dig site in June. We would like to say a big thank you to the members of Duddon Dig for making our day so fun and interesting.
