Year 4's learn about Vikings

The 19th October saw our Year 4 children arrive at school looking somewhat different to their regular selves. In fact, they not only looked very different, but appeared as if they were from a different time period altogether. It was Viking Day! 

Led by similary adorned staff, children in Year 4 were given the opportunity to dress the part of vikings and learn all about the viking culture. As part of this exciting voyage of discovery the children were encouraged to be as creative as possible and as a result created beautiful viking shields, homes, boats and small-scale viking villages from all sorts of materials. The afternoon was spent in our Forest School area re-enacting the lifestyle of our viking visitors from long ago, and we invited parents to share in the wonderful experience.
