Sycamore- Y3/4

Miss Edwards and Miss Robinson

It has been lovely to welcome the children back to school after the summer holidays. It is wonderful to see how ready and eager to learn they are; complete with smiley faces! The children have settled in really well ‘upstairs’ and are showing myself and Miss Robinson how sensible they are when walking up and down the stairs.

Our Work

Thursday 25th October 2018

When we arrived at school this morning, Miss Edwards read us a very important letter from the University.

Andrew Potter, an Archaeologist had requested our help with identifying organic remains…. aka…. POO!

As you know, we have been studying The Stone Age and delving into the horrible histories of this period of time. We were extremely excited when our challenge was to find out which organic remains belonged to which part of history.

We worked in pairs to dissect the organic remains (don’t worry, we wore masks and gloves) to work out which poo belonged to who!

 

 

We were given three types of organic remains and three history clues to help us work out if the organic remains belonging to The Stone Age, The Romans or 2018.

Take a look at the fun we had dissecting…
