Over the past few weeks, Year five started looking at their new topic all about the Vikings and we have learnt so much already! We have been lucky enough to have two fantastic visits recently, one from a fabulous watercolour artist called Jenny and another from Richard- That History Bloke! With Jenny, we created some amazing watercolour art which was a scene including a viking long ship sailing on a stormy sea. All of the children loved using the watercolour paints – we felt like professional artists and the finished product was fantastic!
Our second visit was from Richard -That History Bloke – where he paid us a visit to talk about the life of a viking. We looked at viking artefacts such as clothing, weapons and food and also practiced writing in runes. We finished off the day by listening to a fantastic viking story told by Richard and then having a go at playing an old viking game! we are very lucky to have had these visitors and we have learnt so much!
