Whilst there we: made pots, took part in Viking role play and learnt about how treasures from the past are analysed.

Archaeological Dig

On Monday 17th October Year 5 attended an archaeological dig at the Lime Kilns in Marple.

We have been looking at the work of Samuel Oldknow and as part of this project we are exploring the legacy he has left in the local area.  We worked together with archaeologists from the University of Salford and they showed us how to undertake the work and how to interpret our finds.

Below are pictures from our session at the dig.

10,000BC workshop – Year 3 looking for clues!

Year 3 had an amazing time last Thursday, working with Mr and Mrs Trevor in  a 10,000BC workshop. They developed their historical enquiry skills by looking for clues that would help them with placing artefacts in chronological order and identifying what the different objects were used for.
