Skol!

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…

  1. Hi mrs larkin I really enjoyed the cooking.
    I also really enjoyed making a wall out of mud it was fun and muddy I got it everywhere even on my face.
    I liked watching the boats burn and to see them catch on fire was a shock.
    I loved making the helmets with the tin foil.
    Making the coins was fun too.
    I did not like the mead. I liked the fish I also liked the veg.
    I liked dressing up as Vikings and seeing other peoples costumes.

    I really enjoyed today

    1. Hey Georgina, I’m glad you enjoyed it! If the only thing you didn’t enjoy today was the mead, that’s good enough for me! I have to say, I thought your costume was great and it looked even more authentic with a bit of mud 😉

  2. I really enjoyed the day as well! I agree with Georgina – I didn’t like the mead! But apart from that I enjoyed everything else! Can we do it again!? 🙂

  3. Well when I got home I telled my mum and brother and sister all about the day. I didnt like the mead it was horrible but I would have another day like that again. We could do it about something different because the Romans should be a lot better. When we made the boats I liked it because we could write what we want on it and when it was burning because it was very big flames and when we was all cutting the veg up people cut there self but I didnt because I was being sensible. I think everyone was being sensible but it can sometimes happen. I am glad everyone is ok

    1. That’s great that you went home and told your family all about it 🙂 I think you’ll enjoy our Romans day just as much when we do it.
      Caught you…it should be ‘When we were cutting the veg’. You’re right – accidents do sometimes happen, but as we get better with our cooking skills, there is less chance of anyone having an accident. Thanks for being so sensible all day – you proved that we can still have lots of fun without letting our behaviour slip. Well done!

  4. Hi Mrs Larkin, I agree with Henry . Brandon’s costume was one of the best.
    I liked your costume as well . It looked like everyone put a lot of effort into their costume. I really enjoyed yesterday!
