Archaeological Dig at Cresswell

Wednesday, 26 September 2018

On the 26th September 2018, the Year 4 children went on an archaeological dig to Cresswell Pele Tower. They were given the opportunity to dig for buried artefact, wash and clean them and try to identify what they were.

They were also given the priviledge of going inside the Pele Tower and up the winding stone stairs to the parapet where they had views all around the sea and surrounding countryside.

Miss Willcock's year 3 and 4 class recently had an Ancient Greek day to tie in with their topic work. Miss Willcock told us all about it...

"In the morning we did art activities, making Greek theatre masks, leaf head garlands and learning about the Greek alphabet. We also made olympic torches."

"In the afternoon, Mr Vardy opened our olympic games ceremony by lighting our torches."

On Tuesday, our school brass miniband (a band of brass instrument players from year 5 and 6) got the opportunity to visit Woodhorn museum, where they were able to work on the arts award that they are all aiming to achieve this year.

The children got the chance to explore the museum, especially looking at the paintings and thinking of ways they could express the art in the form of music. They created drama based around the mining history of the area, and used their brass instruments to add to the atmosphere.

What a great experience - well done to the miniband!
