Class of the week - Year three at St Mary's Academy, Mildenhall

Viking Longships crewed by year three students invaded St Mary’s Church of England Academy, this week.

Students at the Mildenhall school had been working on a project entitled ‘invaders’ and were tasked to design and build the ships as a home learning project.

They travelled to the Anglo Saxon village at West Stow to gather inspiration for their designs and harnessed a range of materials.

Among the ships presented were traditional sea faring wooden boats as well imaginative crafts made from lego, tin foil and cardboard.

Teacher Aileen Robinson said: “We are delighted with the results and hugely proud of them all.”
