Year 10 will be undertaking fieldwork this week at Yorkshire Museum in York as part of their Raiders and Invaders expedition. Both classes will visit the museum but on different days.
Students will travel by minibus and will depart at 09.15 and return to school in time for lunch, arriving at 12.30.
This means that there will be no change to the normal school day and students are not required to bring a packed lunch.
We politely ask that students arrive with outdoor clothing and comfortable footwear, writing and note taking equipment and devices to take pictures. If you have any questions or queries, as usual please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Send an email to Mrs Batty or Mr Voltaire.
Students in Admiral and Skipper C21 have revision set as extended study this week.

-The changing nature of Viking (Rus) trade and settlement in Russia from c.750
-The nature of Viking trade and interaction with the Arab world
