Today we had a Viking visitor - Wayland - who came to visit us in school and teach us all about how the Vikings used to live. We had an awesome day experiencing different Viking crafts and activities. We made clay oil burners, made and played a viking game, and trained to be viking warriors with shields and spears! We also got to handle a variety of viking artifacts. Examining the way they were built, the materials that were used and the skill and craftmanship that was required to make the objects. Did you know many words we use today come from words used during viking times? Our favourite part was learning how to make a real fire without using matches (safely of course)!
We had a fantastic day and learnt so much - what a fab way to continue our topic this term!
