Y3 Visit to Perlethorpe

Year 3 recently visited Perlethorpe Education Centre with Y4 to conduct a fieldtrip investigation of the River Meden and learn more about the Vikings.

We began with the River study, where our expert Rob, guided us in measuring a river bank and it’s river flow also let us net creatures from the water to look at more closely. The children were brilliant, despite the initial excitement at getting water in their wellies, we were reliably informed it would soon warm in our wellies…and it did! Year 3 were so enthusiastic, and more importantly, sensible. They really relished the outdoor adventure and demonstrated real resilience.

After we demolished our lunches, we headed out to The Viking House, where history was really brought to life by our Viking Guide expert. The children had the opportunity to role-play important figures from that time period, and handle weapons and armoury. We also got to grind some grain and do some shield exercises.

After our busy active day, we relaxed on the bus home, having the time to reflect on our adventures and memorable experiences. An unforgettable day.
