Well, Year 5 has got off to a busy start! Our topic this term is all about the Battle of Hastings, as Mr T and his puppy Max dug up some old swords. They were sent to be investigated at the Royal Armouries and they turned out to be daggers!
Although we weren’t allowed to keep the originals, they have sent Mr T replica’s which they created using 3D mapping! So after that exciting delivery and having the chance to look at the daggers, we had our visit to the Royal Armouries in Leeds last week.
The trip was fantastic! All the children got the chance to look around the galleries and we even got the chance to handle some of the weapons and armour that the Saxons and Normans would have worn during the Battle of Hastings!
What was your favourite part of the trip?
