Before half term, we took part in the Viking day. We dressed up as Viking villagers, wearing their clothes and doing their jobs. We mended the nets, designed sea-monsters, looked for evidence of Viking place-names, made jewellery, wove cloth on a hand loom and minted coins. By the end we were tired and we only got a couple of muddy knees over the whole day... what an achievement!
You can look at our pictures but if you meet any of these fearsome girl warriors or berserkers on a dark night, be afraid, be very afraid.
For our class assembly, we made a special edition of Horrible Histories.
We answered questions like ... why did some Vikings go into battle stark naked ?
What did the Vikings wipe their bottoms with ? Did the Vikings play with Lego ?
Also most importantly, were they just cold -bloodied killers ?
You can relive this by watching the assembly presentation.
