Viking Day (Autumn 2013)

By the time we had arrived at school on the Viking Day, the middle room between Ullswater and Coniston had been transformed. There were old wooden chests, animal furs, iron pots, swords, shields and armour, and right in the middle of it all was a real, live Viking!

First, we all had to dress as Vikings (even the teachers!) with a large over shirt and hat or bandana. Then, the Viking told us all about how the Vikings lived, what their homes were like, and what life was like when at sea. He showed us how they cooked and explained why they are thought of as people who came and killed for land. He also explained how some of the ideas we have today are incorrect and taught us about what really happened.

In the afternoon, we took part in some different activities. We made our own wax candle holders and Viking Runes games out of clay in the art room. In the other room, we studied and drew different Viking artefacts and we learnt how to use a sword and shield. Then we all came back together for questions at the end.

Since our Viking day, we have been doing our own Viking projects across the three classes. Some of us learned more about Viking weaponry, making swords and shields. Some of us have looked at Viking longboats and have built our own model ships. And some of us have found out more about Viking homes and food, cooking different Viking recipes, building Viking houses and making our very own Viking necklaces and brooches.
