|Briefly describe how the activity / event added to the SMSC experience for the children.
|On Tuesday we had a special Viking Day at school for year 5 and 6. We had lots of fun dressing as Vikings and making a Viking Longboat. We worked in teams to guess what different Viking artefacts were and then discovered the truth after great discussions. We all got to handle real Viking weaponry, Helmets and try our strength at the chainmail challenge!
We all got to use the Quern (mill) stones to grind the grain into flour as the Vikings would have done to create their bread and trained as Vikings using wrestling sticks, spears and shields.
|Any other details?
|We were told about important, historical battles and We learnt about Viking Runes (signs and symbols used by the Vikings as their alphabet) Viking board games were also provided and we asked our quest speaker lots of interesting questions, such as, “Did the Vikings really throw sick children over board?”
