During the trip, the children learnt about the Vikings’ attempts at settling and the struggle between the kingdom of Wessex and the Danes. They also learnt about how the Vikings were able to explore widely, what they needed to do this, about different aspects of their lives and the fact that they didn’t always win.
The children experienced drama and fun, taking part in a range of activities to promote historical understanding, teamwork and problem solving.
They had an absolutely amazing time! The visit really brought the learning to life!
