Who’s that waving axes and brandishing swords? It’s the Vikings invading Britain’s shores! During this half term, we’ll start by making sturdy boats to sail the ocean’s fearsome waves. We’ll write reports as an onlooker who witnessed the invasion of Lindifarne, and we’ll find out about key dates. We’ll make models of Viking weaponry, homes and jewellery and carefully carve runes using clay tools. When we learn about the Norse Gods and the stories behind them, we’ll retell, and write character portraits. We’ll write poems praising King Olaf, making sure they are complimentary, and learn about the everyday lives of the Vikings. Using maps, we’ll identify the places where the invaders came from and locate viking invasion sites. We’ll research Viking beliefs and take part in a scrumptious Viking feast. At the end of the project, we’ll reflect on what it would have been like to be a child during these troubled times and invite you to a Viking art exhibition.
