Year 5 Viking Day
On the first day of term Year 5 had a visit from a Viking to start our topic in style. During the morning we learnt about Viking warriors; having an opportunity to wear some of the vicious warriors' clothes and try out some of their weapons. Later in the morning, we all designed and made our own brooches and also learnt about how Vikings traded goods.
During the afternoon we played some ancient Viking games. Our competitive streaks came through as we played 'Kubb' in teams and then 'Nine Men Morris'. Before we knew it, it was the end of the day and we heard a Viking story. Everyone came away with some great memories
