Year 5 Viking Day

We have had an amazing Viking Day.

We began our day by becoming Vikings from Norway, Denmark or Sweden. Once in our groups, we then had to work together to create a long boat which would get us across the North Sea. We had great fun trying to get our team across the sea before we could settle and make our new homes in England. After building our dens, we were given a task card which gave us a scenario where we then had to trade with our neighbours, hunt or buy from the Viking market: The Birk.

We finished the day by making a trailer on IMovie to persuade people to read our class novel: Riddle of the Runes.
The children have been unbelievable today. I said to them at the start of the year that in Upper Juniors, we wanted them to grow in independence and today they have shown that they have achieved that and more!

So a huge well done to all of Year 5 for joining in today with such enthusiasm and demonstrating brilliant teamwork!
