Jorvik Centre

As part of our history topic about the Vikings, Year 4 went on a visit to the Jorvik centre. While there the children experienced what Viking life would have been like all those years go in York. They were surprised to see children paying games with family, like today, but shocked at the smells, especially the Viking sanitation. As part of the visit the children had a turn at being archaeologists, searching through Viking rubbish to see how they lived in the past. They even got to see and feel fossilised Viking poo!
