Class 5, what can I say!! You are officially amazing Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. Your work yesterday was so good!! I have never seen such a cool collection of costumes, shields, helmets and even axes, plus your dens were the best! I hope you all enjoyed our battle day! Please take time at what you sent to me today before scrolling down to find today’s work.




So another different day today as we are going to continue our Viking theme…

Firstly, like yesterday we have the chance to join in with the Jorvik Centre’s live sessions. If you missed yesterdays, here is the link to today’s at 10am and 2pm. (I think the content will be very similar to yesterday)

Well, a virtual one! Click on the link below for a trip around the Jorvik Viking Centre!

Wow! I hope you enjoyed that. Next, I would like you to make a poster or information sheet to explain some of the things you found and saw. Please add drawings and facts to make it look really effective.

Activity 2 – Jorvikanory – As part of their Jorvik thing, the Viking Centre has arranged for some authors to talk about and read some of their books set in Viking times.

Activity 3 – Guided Reading

In this lesson, we will discuss some of the themes in the poem. After this, there will be an opportunity to write our own poem using similar themes to the ones identified in ‘The Listeners’. Please complete all tasks and upload finished work to seesaw.

Activity 4 – Viking Games

The Vikings liked to play different types of board games. Have a watch of this video to find out about a game called Hnefatafl.

It sounds a little bit confusing to me!

Another game they used to play was called Nine Mens Morris. Have a go for yourself…(this is a bit simplier – I managed to get the hang of it but didn’t win!)
