Mrs Smurthwaite and the Year 5 children discovered an Anglo-Saxon burial site within the Greatwood school grounds.  The children used metal detectors and archaeological tools to excavate the site.  They found the remains of bones and Anglo-Saxon coins.  The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience with one child saying 'This is excellent practise for when i'm a palaeontologist.'  Mrs Smurthwaite commented that the class are 'an absolute joy.  They exude enthusiasm for everything."
