Anglo-Saxon/Viking Museum Display
On Thursday 14th December, Year 6 put together a museum display in their classroom which covered many different aspects of the ongoing dispute for control of England between the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings. This was the culmination of many weeks of work and every class in the school was invited to attend; some parents even popped in too!
Visitors to the museum were treated to a range of artefacts, posters, films and presentations on a range of areas including Edward the Confessor, Viking Tactics, King Alfred the Great and Wessex. These topics proved popular with the children, particularly because we had an assortment of weapons on show as artefacts and even a five-foot ship constructed from metal!
Even though we had some technical difficulties with the films and Power Points, everyone appeared to enjoy the experience and learn a lot. However, we did have to keep a close eye on whoever had hold of the weapons! We even managed to learn a few things from each other's stalls. Thanks to all who came!
