Ancient Technology Centre Residential

How would you feel about living like a Viking for not only a day but for a whole night? Well Year 4 loved the thought - so we made it happen! We visited the Ancient Technology Centre in Dorset, dressed like Vikings, farmed like Vikings, ate like Vikings and slept like Vikings! Sleeping in a reconstructed Long House, the only heating being a roaring open fire, no windows - simply some leather animal skins rolled down to keep out the wind and light, no mattresses - instead only sheepskins for warmth and comfort! Admittedly, some children were nervous however, it was an amazing experience and we created some memories to last a lifetime! The children developed incredible independence, accepted every job they were given and worked as an incredible team, supporting one another! Not many people can say they had a sleepover with their whole class in a Viking Longhouse....Year 4 at St Jude's can! 

Upon our return we have written a trip advisor review which we hope to have published by trip advisor.... enjoy looking at our photos - treasured memories for the adults and the children.
