On Wednesday 5th October 2016, Year 6 went to visit the river Thames to do mudlarking (which is the same as archaeology).

We also learnt many things. For example, we discovered that the tide changes twice a day. Luckily, when we were there, the tide was low.

Once we were able to explore the foreshore, we were thrilled to discover a range of items. We found many things including pottery, industrial waste, shells and a variety of rocks. Using the items that we discovered, our groups created a mini gallery and then presented it to everyone else.

The trip was really fun and useful, because we were reminded about the history and important uses of the river Thames.
