JUNE 2019

Years 3/4/5 will be studying Anglo-Saxons and Vikings in History.  The Teachers have prepared History Enrichment Days where the children will spend the day immersed in Anglo-Saxon/Viking culture and participating in a range of practical activities.  The Teachers love to dress up so it would be great if the children could create a costume to wear on the day.

3/4AB and 3/4VS will have their experience day on Wednesday 5th June

4/5LT and 4/5MK will have their experience day on Wednesday 12th June

The day will be run by staff at the school and a member from the 'Bring History to School Project' which is a Heritage Lottery funded project that Rockingham Forest Trust is delivering.  

This will be an enjoyable and informative day for all the children.
