Our Year 3 pupils came to school dressed perfectly for a Viking Workshop. They had even made their own pewter amulets in Forest School ready to adorn their wonderful costumes.
The Workshop started with a history lesson on the Vikings and their invasions followed by a quiz on the different aspects of Viking life, their kings and battles. The children were introduced to Viking riddles and had fun playing a game called Tafl – a strategic board game involving a fox and geese.
In the afternoon, there was much amusement in the playground as they completed the timeline up to the Battle of Hastings with a re-enactment of the fight in slow motion!
