Year 7s visited York in December to learn more about what life was like in the past. Students visited the York Castle Museum and got the chance to buy sweets from a Victorian sweet shop; some even tried on English Civil War helmets! Many pupils found the fresh Viking air in the Jorvik a bit too much to handle. We also learnt that Vikings cleaned their hair with 3 week old urine which bleached it blonde.
It was a great 2 days and despite the freezing cold conditions (and Miss Dooley falling over) all pupils involved conducted themselves exceptionally well.
