On Friday the 9th of March, Year 5 and Year 6 were visited by Petr (Peter) the Viking. Through a variety of activities, talks, games and artefacts Petr taught the children about many fascinating aspects of Viking and Anglo-Saxon life. The children particularly enjoyed creating a shield wall, with the amazing shields they had created for homework.
They enacted the Lindsfarne raid, and revelled in taking the two innocent monks, Mrs Brooks and Mrs Cox, as their prisoners. The children also had the opportunity to look at various artefacts and try to work out what they would have been used for. The visit was extremely valuable as it brought our Anglo-Saxon and Viking topic to life for the children.
We would particularly like to thank the parents for all their help and support in creating super costumes and shields, it really added to the feel of the day.
