SPECIAL EVENTS

Year 4 Viking Day

19 June 2009

On Friday 19th June, Year 4 had a visit from the Viking Longship Company. Erik Eriksson brought a huge selection of artefacts for the children to explore and handle.

The children learned about traditional Viking customs, such as unusual laws, Viking names and their favourite - Viking punishments!

They learned about the Viking's idea of the creation of the world, by acting it out, and were given the chance to handle and try on Viking weapons and armoury. The day was made to feel even more authentic, because the children dressed up as Vikings, as you can see. We were really pleased with the costumes, which had been made, bought or hired.

The children seemed to learn lots from this hands-on focus day, and we look forward to the company returning next year for the current Year 3.
