Recently Form 4 visited York – a trip designed to support the project work that the children are studying on ‘The History of York’. Our first visit was to the York Minster Education Centre where the children attended a workshop and were able to learn about how the Minster building has changed over the centuries. This was followed by an interesting tour of the Minster itself. After a quick lunch, we then ventured the short distance across the city to the Yorkshire Museum. Here the children were able to explore the various exhibits before meeting ‘Morca, the Earl of Northumbria’, who was our guide to the intense struggle for York between Anglo-Saxon and Viking invaders between 866AD and 1066AD. The workshop concluded with a sword and shield drill to determine which children would be suitable for recruitment into the Anglo-Saxon army! We await his decision!
