Trips & Events
After our trip last half term to the National Space Centre for our Earth and Space topic, we are hoping to have a school visit this half term focused on the Vikings. An action packed workshop lead by 2 external professionals who specialise in Viking history will lead the children through craft, drama, singing, art, story telling and many other activities for a whole day of fun which should consolidate our leaarning on Vikings and Anglo Saxons.
