Class 5 Learning
Class 5 Trip to Jorvik
Making our way past a very snowy Clifford’s Tower.
|Getting our hands on some authentic Viking weaponry at the DIG centre.|
|Learning how to form a shield wall – useful for defending yourselves against Saxon attacks!
|Discussing everyday life, raids, wars and history with (almost) real Vikings.|
Class 5 had a fantastic day out at the Jorvik centre last week as part of our current Viking topic. We feel really lucky to live so close to the epicentre of British Viking culture, and to get our hands on real-life artifacts that would have been held by our Viking ancestors over a thousand years ago! The children enjoyed a workshop in which they handled some real weaponry, while learning about the advantages and disadvantages of each type, and also the tactics of Viking and Saxon battles.
