Archaeologists

Yesterday (25.6.19) Year 3 had an extremely important job to do!

Over the weekend, Mr Sheible found some rather interesting artefacts in our school grounds and he decided that year 3 should try to figure out what they are. With the help of Miss Clarke, Mr Hints, Mrs Baird and Mrs Doyle, Year 3 became archaeologists for the day.

First, they had to dig up the artefacts from sand trays, carefully brush the excess sand off and then answer some questions about their discoveries.

The children made some brilliant predictions about what they thought the artefacts were, such as:

Dinosaur bones, Woolly mammoth bones, arrowheads, a carving tool for cavemen to draw pictures on caves and an old fashioned 'spork'!

After a while, we all decided that we needed some help in order to find out where the artefacts came from and what they actually are, as a group we had a discussion and decided to ask experts from the World Museum in Liverpool, so Mrs Baird kindly went to speak to Mrs Doran in the office and she gave them a call. Hopefully we will hear from them soon!

 

Archaeologists for a day!
