Year 5 visit to the Time and Tide Museum

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Time and Tide Museum on Friday 26th November.  The lives of Anglo-Saxons and Vikings were brought to life by the staff at the Museum and greatly supported the learning of the pupils.  The experience enabled them to engage with the activities of: archaeology where they used a metal detector and debated the value of finds; creating a settlement by deciding what to take on a voyage (and becoming a ship!); brooch making using symbols; how weapons were utilised to support successful campaigns;  and taking part in the story of St. Edmund.
