Year 5 Battle Abbey Trip

As part of the Year 5 History topic, we have been learning about the Battle of Hastings. We were lucky enough to visit Battle Abbey to see first-hand where it all happened.

Who wanted to be King?

Types of weapons used to fight!

More weaponry!

Each class had a workshop with a guide from Battle Abbey. She explained who wanted to be King and we had the chance to dress up and act a little too. Also, we had the opportunity to look at the different weaponry the Saxons and Normans may have used. After that, we marched in our armies (Saxon and Norman), shouting our war cries, close to where the battle is said to have taken place. Here we re-enacted the battle!

Let's battle!

We also had the opportunity to look at the different fantastic buildings and grounds of Battle Abbey before having lunch!

(Ice House)!

A great time was had by all!
