Welcome back and happy New Year to all of the year 5 children. It was great to see you all again today and what a day it has been! We had a Viking visitor at SdS today and we have learnt so much.
We learnt that Isobel was the strongest in the class. She could lift the Viking shield and hold it at arm’s length… It must down to all of the sports that she plays!
We learnt all about the clothing that the Vikings wore including their armour… and that the shape of the helmet and the chain mail prevented your head from getting chopped off (although Alex did look a little worried!)
We learnt why the Viking’s weapons were shaped the way they were (and don’t worry no children were harmed in the making of our Viking day!)
We learnt lots of information about the Viking long ships and the children asked some great questions.
We also learnt how the Vikings protected themselves in battle.
A fun day was had by all.
