Year 3 - Vicious Vikings
3H had a wonderful day at our Viking Experience. We started by learning all about the Viking's way of life and their raiding travels across the sea. We then turned our hand to weaving and learned that everything the Vikings had, they had to make themselves. This was followed by handling some Viking artefacts and some Viking armour.
Did you know that the Vikings swords were longer and heavier than the Anglo-Saxons? It meant that the Anglo-Saxons had to be quicker on their feet!
We tried out some archery on the school field and fashioned our own Viking longships from clay. To end our day, we held a Thing. This was the way the Vikings solved arguments, disputes and criminal matters. Everyone joined in with enthusiasm and a fantastic time was had by all.
