Year 5 Archaeology Day

Year 5 Archaeology Day

 

On Friday 24th March, all of our Year 5 pupils were involved in working in partnership with the Hyde 900 ‘Finding the Stones’ team. They had the opportunity to ‘ Sort Finds’, supplied by Winchester Museums Service; take part in a tour of Hyde to ‘Stone Search’ and familiarise themselves with the historical context of this area and make an encaustic tile, using medieval methods – with the exception of the electric kiln firing which will happen over the coming weeks! The event has even made today’s Hampshire Chronicle:
