Mudlarking on the Thames
Today we went down onto the foreshore of the Thames and explored the clues from the past that we found there. We found ancient pottery, leather, mussel shells and even bones!
Today we visited Tower Bridge. We took part in a workshop where we played the part of some archeologists and investigated things from the past. We had a tour of the bridge and saw how the workers helped the bridge come to life. We went up and looked through the glass floor, we were all very brave we even walked on it!
This week we have been looking at animals including humans in our science topic. We have investigated the skeleton, why we have it and its different forms. We have looked at the different types of skeleton and sorted the animals.

Forest School- Cooking
This week in Forest School we had a go at cooking! We created our own festive vegetable pittas.
Museum of Docklands
This week we visited the Museum of Docklands. We met a Docker and listened to his tales from the past. He described the backbreaking work and the conditions the workers had to endure. We learnt about how containers we invented to help unload the huge cargo ships and how unions were set up to support the dock workers from being exploited.
We then were able to explore the museum. We found some fascinating things from Ambergris, which is formed from a secretion of the intestines of a whale, to hiding in bomb shelters from World War 2!
Enjoy some of our pictures from the day!
Planting Seeds and Starting our Gardening Journey
This week we worked alongside Emma and Kieron Schiff from Country Trust, who is going to be working with us on our gardening project, to begin planting our beds ready to grow some vegetables and fruit in the spring term. We even planted some seeds ourselves to bring home! We had lots of questions about the different plants we were growing and loved working in the garden and getting nice and messy planting up the beds. We cannot wait to see our seeds begin to grow!
