Mudlarking trips

 Years 3 and 4 went to the Thames River for Mudlarking trips this week  The children really enjoyed themselves. Here are some photos and comments from 4L:

"It was amazing, I found a piece of Tudor pottery which is hundreds of years  old!” -Demi.

One parent said her child was so  excited she couldn't stop talking about the trip all weekend. 

"I searched and found a pipe bowl and pipe which is very, very old." - Mantaz.

 The whole class  enjoyed rummaging around in the mud finding treasure and found a range of  items including Tudor and Victorian pottery, coral, shells, bones, iron nails and much more. Dennis, their history guide from the Museum of London, explained the history behind the river and their finds.
