    A fantastic day at Sudbury Hall!

    What an amazing jam-packed day Year 5 had at Sudbury Hall! From a Victorian classroom experience, to climbing a ‘chimney’ and building on our understanding of forces with toys through the ages - it was a whirlwind day full of fun and learning!

    Well done Year 5!
