This week, Year 5 were lucky enough to visit the Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth to learn all about Vikings and Anglo-Saxons and the battle between them for land in East Anglia. The day ended with a Viking ship burial of a Viking called Sidgard. During the day, the children got to: learn about the journey to England from Scandnavia, learn about the tension from the perspective of a Saxon, use a metal detector to learn about how historical discoveries are made and learn how to be a Viking warrior, using a shield and (rubber!) axe. All the children had a wonderful time and were excellently behaved.
