Today we met a Viking Skald!
Incase you didn’t know, a skald is a story teller who brings the past to life. Our skald regaled us with tales of Norse life, shared artefacts and showed us how to prepare for battle. What a brilliant afternoon!
Preparing for a raid!
The battle cry!!
Welcome to Scandinavia and the land of the Norsemen - gathering information and finding out more!
What comes into your mind when you hear the word VIKINGS?
Has History Been unfair to the Vikings?
This is the BIG question we will be posing as we embark on a journey through the Viking era. Each week we will be offering a range of sources to prompt further enquiry and discussion as we endeavour to challenge what the children ‘think’ they already know about the Vikings.
Wow! What a way to kickstart a new school year! This morning, we welcomed a travelling storyteller, known as Wolfstein, into school who regaled us with tales from the time of the Anglo Saxons. We enjoyed re-enacting key features from this time and spent time handling interesting and thought provoking artefacts. We finished our session with a series of spear drills, which was certainly a highlight!
