Growing Together

Year 4 travels back to 878AD

Year 4 pupils were fortunate enough to finish their history learning about the Anglo-Saxons with a visit to the 878AD experience in Winchester City Centre. Whilst there, the children travelled back in time to experience life in Winchester in 878AD when King Alfred led an army to defend Wessex against the Vikings. Amongst other activities, the children interviewed real life Anglo Saxons to trade goods, learn about law and order and discover how the people of Winchester lived and felt. After some exciting live performances and video projections, we heard that King Alfred had won at the Battle of Edington and we travelled back to present day safe and sound. What a journey!
