Year 3 have greatly enjoyed researching their new class topic for the term – learning all bout the Vikings! We have started off our work by finding out who the Vikings were, and where they came from. We have also been learning about why they came to Britain, and what kind of traditions and culture they introduced us to. An early focus for us in our research has been to learn about how the Vikings travelled. We have been looking at the designs for long boats, and thinking how they differ to the transport we use today. We have used our Viking theme during art lessons. Each pupil has designed his or her very own Viking shield. We thought about the bright colours that are needed, and how these might help to build a more fearsome image during battle. You can watch a video with three of our young Year 3 Vikings above.
