Koala Viking Day - 05/02/2020

< Back to the news


Years 5 and 6 had a fascinating and interactive day learning about Vikings. There were some amazing costumes created with imagination which gave a very 'Norse' feel to the day. A visiting Viking told us many things from how the Vikings behaved, to how they made coins, fought with swords and spears and lots more about the language and writing that the Vikings used. Everyone wore an amulet to display their chosen Norse name, and we were allowed to handle authentic Viking items. The day linked lots of pieces of information we have already learned, such as how the Vikings built their longships; this is helping us in DT because we are building our own model of a longship.
