We went on a trip to Creekside to learn about the Victorians and how Deptford Creek was during those times. We walked along the creek while the tide was low, to look for artefacts. We were shown a slaughter house and didn’t realise how all of the dirt and rubbish was disposed of in the creek and the River Thames. We also did some fishing and found fresh water shrimp.
In the classroom we explored different types of artefacts that were found in the river and learnt about the history behind them. It was really fun!
