The Dig.

Today we went to Calthorpe Haven and became archaeologists. We had to dig to find clues about our new topic. We found a Roman Solidier, a map of Rome, a metal detector, a piece of mosaic and a rope. It was hard to find the clues and took a lot of time and good team work, however we found them all and we enjoyed ourselves.

Afterwards we had to think what do they have to do with the Romans? Whywas there rope in the find?

Year 5 meet Shoo Rayner

Last week we visited Thimblemill Library where we were lucky enough to meet Shoo Rayner. It was interesting to hear all about how he became an author and we enjoyed listening to him read us a short story. He even showed us how to draw characters from his books.

We have been using the tips he gave us and also watching his short drawing clips on YouTube to help us draw Astronauts, planets and lots of other space related pictures for our topic.
