Morning Session - Meeting Viking Waidson
All the adults were incredibly impressed with the outfits that the children wore, the hairstyles that many parents and carers had created and the wonderful boats, shields and helmets that the children had made. Take a look for yourselves.
In the morning, the Year 4 children were incredibly lucky to meet Viking Waidson who was extremely knowledgeable and had lots of amazing artefacts and other interesting things to show us.
Before playtime, Viking Waidson showed us how the Vikings would make fire - it was incredibly exciting but also quite dangerous (we know that we shouldn't try any of the things at home that he showed us today).
After playtime, Viking Waidson told us about slaves and how they were treated. He showed us how people would defend themselves against Vikings and how they would let others know that Vikings were on the attack.
The afternoon - Longboat making
In the afternoon, we all made our own longboats with our own unique shields. We worked incredibly hard on these and they were quite tricky at times.
One of our very kind nannans let their grandson bring in an example of a Viking ring which was really interesting to look at.
