Archaeology Day - In collaboration with Bellway and the Springstead Development 


As part of the ongoing work at the Springstead development, we were offered the opportunity of a visit from Chris Wakefield, who works at the Cambridge Archaeological Unit. He came and spoke to all children in each class about what archaeology is and what an archaeologist does. He showed us a range a finds - from pre-history to the Anglo-Saxon era, telling the story of people from our local area through time and archaeological artefacts. We saw Roman pots with names inscribed on them which told the story of Celts trying to look cool and 'Romanize' their names for their new neighbours, animal skulls which told the story of which animals were kept and why, and even saw a 3,000 year old poo encased in resin! Chris explained that this was the best thing he has ever dug out of the ground because he tells us so much about the people living at that time - from what they ate to what diseases they may have had. And yes - he said that before it was encased in resin - it did still smell after all this time!

Remembrance Day banner 2020

For Remembrance Day 2020, each class made poppies and stuck them to a letter to spell out the word 'remember'. This was part of our pledge to remember and thank those that fought and those that gave their lives to protect our freedoms. We have displayed this outside school for you to see.
