Year 3 Trip to Norwich Castle:

Continuing their journey through British history, Year 3 kicked off their new history topic with a fascinating trip to Norwich castle, this time with a focus on the Anglo Saxon and Viking influence on Britain.  The children took an active part in several workshops, one of the highlights being the chance to explore some artefacts from the period, see the carefully preserved skeleton of an Anglo Saxon woman and culminating with preparing Humphrey B (in the role of Viking warrior) for his journey to Valhalla, complete with shield, spear, sword.  As always, the castle is a fantastic local resource that brings history to life for the children.
