Viking Day

Year 4 have enjoyed a very busy fun filled Viking Day. The children have learnt lots of facts about Vikings, their transport, raids, battles, settlements, jobs, entertainment and living conditions.

The children have been …

  • handling weapons, tools, armour and other resources from the Viking period.
  • trained in Viking battle drills.
  • identifying the uses of various Viking artefacts.
  • exploring the lives of Viking children.
  • playing Viking games.
  • looking inside of a Viking longhouse.
  • learning about Viking beliefs and legends, crafts and skills, and the roles of men and women of the era.
