This week in Year 5…
Firstly, we would like to thank all of the parents in Year 5 for the incredible effort you all put in to creating fabulous Viking costumes for ‘Viking Day’. As you all know, Year 5 had a Viking visitor on Thursday and all the children had an amazing day.
Our visitor (Ragnor) educated us about many aspects of Viking life such as: the weapons and tools used by the Vikings, the roles of Viking women and daily life. Additionally, all the children were able to explore and investigate different household items. All of the children in Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed the different games they took part in, such as the Viking ship game, where the children learnt about trading during the Viking era.
I am sure by now that the children have told you about some of the gruesome stories they were told and they were fascinated to find out about Viking funerals as well as how Tyr lost his hand.
