YEAR 3 VIKING DAY
Year 3 have been very busy over the last few weeks, learning about the Vikings. Firstly, they enjoyed a Viking Day in school, where they got to dress up and take part in a Viking battle. They also made Viking jewellery using hammers, aluminium wire and leather cord and brooches made of string and foil—very authentic!! Finally, they had to crack the code using runes!
On Monday, they went to Nottingham University to take part in a Viking Workshop. During their visit they made Viking burial boxes that showed warriors and their weapons from 1000 years ago!! They also played with runes, looked at Viking artefacts and received a Viking certificate along with a university logo bag.
