    Local History Week!!

    By Fred Austin, year 8

    Issue 12 Friday 18th June 2010 Next issue: 25/06/10

    The final activity was drawing a scale

    diagram of objects scattered under a grid.

    Here at Woodleigh, we are very con-

    scious about our history, we have a history

    society and explore the history at any other


    Years 7 and 8 helped towards this

    goal by doing a dig, near the underground

    dens, with York Archaeological trust.The 24 Archaeologists were split into

    four groups, one for each activity.

    The activities were Pot washing,

    where the groups washed bones and pots,

    an essential part of archaeology, unfortu-

    nately all of the pots to be washed were not

    found at Woodleigh, but in York.

    Another activity was digging, were

    great pains were taken to keep the ground

    level. Then there was the scanning. The

    scanning was mainly done by walking up a

    strip of land and jabbing the machine into

    the ground every 50 centimetres. The sec-

    ond part of the activity was running up and

    down trying to step on the beeps while

    holding a very expensive machine.

    Years 2-6s visit to Malton Museum.

    In the courtyard you will see a part of

    the building that was knocked down.

    Near the science room we think thereis a horse hook.

    Near the science room there was

    some old bricks and some new bricks.

    The old doorway was filled in with

    bricks. you can still see the shape of the

    building that was knocked down.

    When we first got to the museum, we

    were split up into groups.

    Each group did a different activity.

    The first activity my group did was making


    Then we played a game called RoundMerrills, which is basically a game where

    you have six discs and make up a game
