Year 4 Become Vikings for the DayBack to News
In the second week of the Spring Term our Year 4 enjoyed an educational trip to Ufton Court, where they spent the day living as Vikings.
The Viking Explorer Day brought this term’s History topic to life as the pupils experienced Viking culture first-hand. They learned new skills, including fire lighting with Viking flint, making their own bows for hunting, fighting skills using traditional weapons of axes, swords and shields and even taking part in a raid from a Viking long ship.
“It was a really, really, really fun trip!” said Lola. “My favourite part was the raiding!” enthralled Georgie.
“It’s really helped me to understand what it would have been like to live in Viking England”.
