Year 4: Viking Day

Year 4 began their latest History topic by spending the day with a Viking named Hilty Gunnerson. Our 52 young historians really looked the part dressed in their amazing Viking outfits. They learnt facts about the lifestyle, beliefs and homes of the Norse seafarers who settled in Britain over 1,200 years ago. Our pupils held artefacts, re-enacted some Viking games and battles, and took part in a quiz to gain knowledge about this period in history. One pupil tried on a chain mail top and reported that it was extremely heavy. Finally, Hilty used a watermelon to demonstrate the power of a Viking sword.

Thank you, parents, for helping the children with their superb costumes for this special day.
