This project teaches children about life in Britain after the Roman withdrawal. Children will learn about Anglo-Saxon and Viking invasions up to the Norman conquest. This will help us answer our big question: Would you rather be a Viking or an Anglo Saxon, why?
Today, Years 3 and 4 joined together to try four different Viking-themed activities. They made spiced apple juice (practising their cutting and kitchen safety skills, as well as discussing Viking ingredients and cooking methods), made clay Vikings (practising their artistic sculpting skills), learning about, reading and writing Viking runes, and drawing cartoon Vikings (practising their drawing skills). The children have really enjoyed all of the activities and are looking forward to writing a recount of their experience in English over the next week.
