Year 5 had a fantastic start to their Viking history topic – Traders, Raiders and Explorers. Thorgil the Viking shared his journey from Denmark and England. Through drama, we sailed on a longship, filled our chests with useful items to take to England and built long houses. Next, Thorgil wanted to take a slave home with him so Mrs Jarman bartered with him before he checked his new slave was healthy and able to sew. After finding out more about the Vikings beliefs, the session was ended with the story of Thor and his hammer. We all learnt a lot of information about the Vikings and are looking forward to the rest of the term.
