York 2018 Day 2 & 3

Class: Year 4 Year: 2017 - 2018

Evening all,

I hope everyone is settling into telling and hearing all about year 4's week in York. I suspect there may be a few tired children out there tonight. I certainly know there are some tired teachers.

On Thursday, which I'm sure the children will tell you, we walked into York and spent the morning learning about Viking battle tactics as well as the lives of everyday Scandinavians in Jorvik. After this, it was time was time for a spot of lunch before going to the minster. Inside the learning centre, we learnt about the rich history of the city of York. This ranged from the Romans through to present day. We had the chance to take part in plenty of activities including puzzle solving and bridge building. Following this we were given a guided tour of the minster itself.

On Friday, for our final activity, we took a trip back to Viking Denmark to learn that our village was suffering a distinct lack of food. This lead us on a voyage to Jorvik. On our journey, we learnt about famous Viking warriors and the life of Vikings at sea. Once in Jorvik we made leather belts and decorated them with traditional Viking images. Luckily, our trip was a success and we returned to modern day York to handle some real Viking artefacts including a shoe, axe-head and spoon.

Our trip to York was a huge success and a lot of fun. On behalf of the teachers, I would like to compliment the children on their behaviour, manners and all-round representation of both the school and their families. I am already the recipient of emails complimenting the children on their conduct throughout the trip. They were a credit to our whole community.

Finally, don't forget about our class assembly on Friday at 3pm in the school hall.

Enjoy your weekend and some much-needed rest.

Mr Stanway
