Over the past few weeks, an archaeology club run by Mrs Heaton has been travelling back in time from the Vikings to the Romans to the Egyptians.
During our first lesson we learnt how the Vikings wove thread to make shoelaces. Some of us even took extra thread home to make more. We have also baked Viking bread which we ate with honey; made Roman ink and written in Latin and mummified an orange which this week we finally unveiled after keeping it in the airing cupboard for a month. We revealed an orange that still looked liked an orange except it's skin was shrivelled and hard. It however still smelt pleasant thanks to the cinnamon and cloves which were placed inside along with the salt to preserve it.
"I would certainly recommend archaeology club to other pupils as it examines different types periods of the past" Harley — year 5
"Mummified oranges were the best!" Marloe — year 3
"I will definitely do it next time" Izabel- year 4
"My favourite activity was writing in Latin" Lauren -year 4
"My favourite part was making a mummy orange because we got to see how it was in a month." Sophie -year 2
"I liked writing my name in Roman letters" Alesha -year 3

The whole school joined in with the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch this year. Children working in school and at home, staff, parents and governors all took part. The children learned to identify lots of birds; made bird feeders and selected areas around school and at home to station them and then took time to quietly observe and record what they had seen. A big thank you to Mr Bean for registering...
