Welcome Back. We hope you had an enjoyable time over the festive season and wish you all a happy new year. May the year bring you health and happiness!
We have begun our new topic entitled 'Raiders and Traders' which focusses on the Viking era.
As part of our topic, we have visited the Jorvik Dig site in York. The children looked at the work of archaeologists and took part in their own investigation on the different historical layers to the city. The staff were very complimentary of our children's knowledge and as always, they behaved brilliantly!
A Viking visits our classroom
We have had a special visitor to year 4, Astrid the 'Viking'. Not a real Viking, obviously because that would make her over 1000 years old! She did however bring lots of fascinating artefacts with her that we had the opportunity to handle and explore. It was a fun filled day and we really enjoyed it! Here are some pictures.
