Year 5 had an excellent time at the King Richard III Centre in Leicester on Monday 26th February. The children took part in some archaeological workshops involving historical map work, height estimation by measuring and calculating arm and leg lengths, identifying parts of a skeleton and rebuilding a face on a skull. Each of these tasks had been used in the discovery of the remains of King Richard III.
The other part of the day included exploring the exhibition and fact-finding. The children's prior knowledge from the work they had done in class proved very helpful.
All thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the children represented MJS superbly. Many thanks to our parent/grandparent/volunteer helpers.
