Over two days the Year 7’s visited Lincoln as part of their studies on Medieval England. They saw the oldest surviving house in England (the Norman House), and were taught about anit-semitism in medieval England. They also had a tour around Lincoln Cathedral, seeing the Lincoln Imp, the shrine of Little Hugh and the battle standards of the Lincoln regiment. They were shown some surviving pre-reformation medieval paint to tie in to their studies of Tudor England. They then took a tour around Lincoln Castle, seeing the Magna Carta and learning about the establishment of our rights, and learnt about the battle of Lincoln, a critical moment in Englands history. They also got the opportunity to see a Victorian Prison, which will tie in nicely to their year 8 work on crime and punishment.
Mr Howell would like to thank all the staff who made this trip possible.
