Outdoor Learning at St Francis

Year 3 Castle Museum Brilliant Beginning Trip for the topic Invaders

On the first Friday of this Autumn term, Year 3 were whisked off to the castle for a fabulous Viking experience. We had the chance to meet Viking characters – including a trader, a brooch maker and a storyteller – as well as a metal detector who taught us about Viking artefacts and how we can use them to find out clues about the past. Everyone had a brilliant time and represented the school brilliantly. We recommend a visit to the permanent Viking exhibition at the castle if you get the opportunity!
