The Sheldon Memorial Trust is offering a prize worth £1000 to a primary school in York and its environs to explore the city’s Viking past.
Supporting the delivery of ‘The Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the Kingdom of England to the time of Edward the Confessor’ component of Key Stage 2 History, this package of learning activities will encourage learners to think about the settlement of Vikings in the north of England, and includes:
To be in with a chance of winning, tell us what top 3 things you and your class would like to learn about life around the time of the Viking invasion and settlement of Britain. You can do this with letters, drawings or even a video: your class might enjoy role-playing some aspects of Anglo-Scandinavian life! The class with the most creative and persuasive approach will be the winner.
The deadline for submissions is 31st December 2017.
If you have any questions about how to take part, please contact Frances Bennett, Interpretation and Engagement Manager, via firstname.lastname@example.org.
We advise that AV submissions do not run to more than 5 minutes and that written submissions are no more than 1000 words in total. This may mean that a collaborative piece (e.g. a single letter or poster created by a whole class) might be more suitable for your class.
The Sheldon Memorial Trust has teamed up with York Archaeological Trust to present a unique opportunity for schools in York.
