To hook the children into their Vikings topic, Year 4 held their very own Viking day this term. The children all came to school in their best historical costumes (thank you for the amazing effort that families put into these) and were visited be a ‘real life’ Viking. He taught them where the Vikings came from, what they were like and what the Britons thought of them. They handled some amazing Viking artefacts, practised some battle skills and even attended a Viking funeral. The children are now excited to carry on our learning and to explore their key question: Vikings – Raiders or Traders? Thank you to the HSA whose generation fund raising and donation meant that the day could go ahead with no costs falling to families.
