Engaging the next generation at Dines Green Primary School ‘Aspirations Week’
- 12th November 2013
On Monday 11th November Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service visited Dines Green Primary School as part of their ‘Aspirations Week’.
‘Aspirations Week’ encourages the children to think about their hopes and dreams for the future and gives them the opportunity to meet people who work in a variety of different professions, including Emily the Archaeologist.
The Year 3 and Year 5 pupils were extremely enthusiastic and were armed with some interesting and well thought out questions including ‘what is the most exciting thing you have found’ (an early medieval well) and ‘have you ever got stuck in the mud’ (yes, many times!) The children learnt all about the different jobs archaeologists undertake including excavation, landscape survey, illustration and finds analysis. They also discovered more about the archaeology of Worcestershire and have gone away with a better understanding of all of the fascinating archaeology on their very doorstep.
