Spring 1 - Dragons in the Walls

Year 6 have had a great time learning all about the Vikings.  A real life Viking came into school during our first week and taught us all about life in Viking times.  During this visit, we had the opportunity to handle a range of artefacts, act as Vikings and dress up in some amazing costumes.  In addition to this, we took part in a battle and even went on a journey on a longboat.  Then to end our theme, we re-enacted a Viking burial and took part in a Scottish festival, that actually takes place today, called  'Up-Elly-Aa' where we burnt a Viking ship and went on a procession dressed as Vikings.
