A day with a Viking warrior

Lucky Year 4 spent an exciting day with a real Viking on Tuesday as part of their Viking topic work. They were transported back in time experiencing artefacts, staging a wedding, a battle and a burial, and learning an earth shattering warrior cry!  

This term, the children have been learning all about these fearsome warriors including where, when and how they lived, the waters that they sailed, and about their beliefs and rituals. In class, they have been learning all about Icelandic Sagas which were the gruesome tales that the Vikings told about the struggle and conflict - and everyone had a go at writing their own scary tale. They have also learnt about Viking transport and Mrs Howden's class even made their own longboats that they had to fit inside in the woods, using natural materials.
