UNIVERSITY of Cambridge and British Museum Archaeologist Dr John MacGinnis visited King’s Ely Acremont – much to the delight of the children.

Dr MacGinnis launched the new theme for the term, which is Time Travellers. Using the large sandpit, he showed the children how to excavate and sort artefacts, and how to then use them as evidence when coming to conclusions about people from the past.

During his visit on April 19th, Dr MacGinnis even brought in some artefacts he had dug up, and one was a piece of pottery all the way from Iraq that was 7,000 years old!

New terms at King’s Ely Acremont start with a ‘wow’ day to introduce a new topic: a stimulation that inspires curiosity and fires a child’s natural interest and enthusiasm. Learning is brought to life throughout the term with the help of hands-on experiences, visits from experts and exciting trips.

Our pupils develop learning habits which stick with them throughout their King’s Ely journey, taking great pride in their achievements along the way.
