Year 5 Viking Day

Published

Starting with a tremendous roar, the children were introduced to their Viking day by preparing for battle with their shields and weapons! Later, they learnt all about Viking life and trade and played games to enhance their understanding. They learnt about the types of items that Vikings traded and how they lived their day to day lives through farming and hunting to survive. 

The children handled genuine Viking artefacts and weapons (blunt of course!) and learnt how they were used in both attack and defense. Feeling the weight of the chain-link armour was quite an experience! The children had plenty of exciting questions for our visitor who was in role as a Viking the whole day!
