Raiders & Traders
On Thursday 19th September, Y3/4 had a Viking experience day to immerse ourselves in our 'Raiders and Traders' topic.
We looked at Viking script and how Vikings used to write. Using clay, we rolled the shape of our Viking rune. We used what we had learned to form Viking script and write our own name on the clay. This was really tricky as some letters of our name did not exist! We then left the clay rune to dry.
We looked at Viking jewellery and designed a brooch. On a piece of round cardboard, we used string to make a pattern/design of our own. We based this on Viking patterns on jewellery we had seen. We glued the string onto the cardboard and covered it with tinfoil.
We also looked at Viking shields and how Vikings used to use them. We designed a shield of our own using colours and patterns of the Viking age.
