5B visit Deptford Creek

5B had a wonderful time at the Creekside Discovery centre!

After finding out a little about the history and uses of Deptford Creek, we donned our waders and headed off down the river. It was low tide so we were able to walk on the river bed and explore upstream. We had time to race some rubber ducks to see how fast the current was and to do a spot of fishing, catching some shrimp and even some baby gobi.

We had a chance to explore some different artifacts connected to the creek, linked to its history of industry. We looked at historical artefacts belonging to blacksmiths, the pottery trade and even the nearby railway!
