Time Team

Filed under Lessons,Trip

Today, we spent the day working with Brian, our artist in residence. He used our topic of Village Settlers to inspire some archaelogical work.
We explored the woods in the school grounds for evidence of humans. We collected objects and documented our findings for a museum exhibition (in our school). Finally, we used the objects as inspiration for some creative writing.
It was a fantastic day with plenty of sunshine and lots of smiles!

    Dear Mr. Alderdice and Year 3,
    I really enjoyed watching your slide show. What a fantastic idea to go on an archaeological dig on your school grounds. What a lovely forest you have! Are you able to play in it during break times? We love the forest at our school.

    I love that you turned the litter you found into such a positive learning experience. I hope we will get a chance to read some of the stories you wrote.

    Your new friend,
    Mrs. Watson
    Sointula, British Columbia
