Spears at the Ready!

As part of their creative curriculum Topic 'Invaders, Raiders, Settlers and Traders', our Year 5 children visited the Yorkshire Museum and Danelaw Centre in York.

The children had an amazing time learning about the way the Vikings lived. They made clay oil lamps, ground flour to make bread and practised their battle skills!

It was great fun and the children had a brilliant day.


Year 3 Stone Age Day

Our Year 3 children had a visit from The History Van. This was a unique, interactive experience where the year 3 children and staff dressed and acted as prehistoric cavemen re-enacting important events from this period.

The children made weapons and clothes and designed their own jewellery.

The whole day was a great success, thoroughly enjoyed by both pupils and staff.


Roman Fun Day

Our Y4's had a 'Roman Day' to bring their Roman topic to life.

It was a wonderful day with the children and teachers dressing up as Romans and having the opportunity to handle artefacts and meet a Roman expert alongside doing a range of fun activities to reinforce their learning.
