Lincoln Cathedral – October 13th 2023

On a rainy day in mid-October, Year five ventured to Lincoln Cathedral to learn all about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. After a short bus journey we arrived at the visitors centre for a day of learning, exploration and fun. At first, we explored the Cathedral and learned all about its history – the children had some excellent questions and there were plenty of ‘Ooohs!’ and ‘Aaahs!’ as we explored the building. Most notably, the venerable Bede’s actual manuscript was on display – what an amazing sight to see!

The excitement didn’t end there though, we had the chance to handle primary artefacts, build our own archways, sing, view historical maps where we identified Roman, Viking and Anglo-Saxon streets and even had the chance to dress up too. What more could you ask for on a school trip? It was an action-packed day that even the rain couldn’t put a dampener on. Enjoy looking at all our smiling faces!
