Year 5 had a fantastic time on their Viking day. They learnt about Viking myths, traditions, clothing, weapons and invasions. Our Viking visitor brought Viking objects for the children to explore and use- they even got to re-enact a wedding and a Viking invasion using shields and spears (they were extremely good at this as you can see in the pictures). They found out how clever the Vikings really were and were surprised to learn that many words we use today have Viking roots.  In the afternoon, they made a Viking board game and Viking oil lamps. They really did not want the day to end and they expressed their disappointment when the Viking visitor had to say goodbye in a chorus of, “Awwww….” Another child quoted, “Can you come back tomorrow?”
