In Year 5, we were invaded by Vikings for our ‘Viking Day’ which was full of exciting and interactive experiences. We started the day with an introduction about the Vikings, spent time playing ‘Fox and Geese’ and took part in a Viking quiz. After, the children were able to handle original artefacts using their investigative skills to hypothesise what the artefacts were used for and understand what life as a Viking was like. In the afternoon, children were engaged in drills, commands and battles in the role of a Viking warrior. Fun was had by all and the children gained so much knowledge from this invaluable experience.
