We started the day creating runic messages for each other before preparing the food for our feast. We then made coins for trading and Viking helmets. In the afternoon, we experimented with building using a wattle and daub technique before thinking about what we would have on our longship when it made its final journey to the halls of Valhalla. Once they’d been set alight, we ended our day with our delicious feast. Tell us your favourite part of the day…
What sorts of things did the Vikings eat? Do you fancy making a prediction on what we might be cooking during our Viking Immersion Day on Thursday? I promise it won’t be horse or ox 😉
What can you discover about Alfred the Great? What are his notable dates? What’s his story? Do agree that he was a great king? You might want to begin your research here and then share what you’ve found out.
Year 6 had an epic day today visiting Jorvik to discover more about Viking raiding and battle tactics. It was a little bit brutal and and a little bit gruesome but tons of fun! We’ll need to be careful from now on that we don’t get on the wrong side of Warren Ironside and his Bearded Axe; he’s trained and ready, willing and able to take you down!
