Year 3 pupils from Thames Primary Academy went to Watson Road Park and made an exciting discovery.

They went to see what was happening in the park because they heard something interesting was going on.

They dug gently and carefully with a trowel to look for treasure in the ground.

They found bones that felt hard. They also found some metal jugs and some rock hard fossils.

“This is so amazing!” cried one of the pupils.

The Thames pupils took them back to school to have a closer look at the treasure they had discovered.
