Year 3 have started their Viking topic this term, learning all about the traders that came to our shores over one thousand years ago. We have been finding out exactly where the Vikings came from, and why they visited Britain. As well learning about some of the Viking raids that took place, Year 3 have been understanding more about trade and bartering, and why the Viking had to come to Britain to carry this out.
To help us out with our new topic, both Year 3 classes visited the Maritime Museum at nearby Greenwich. We enjoyed a wonderful workshop where we shown some of the original items that the Vikings traded. A number of our children also had the chance to dress up in Viking costumes! You can find out more about our visit in the podcast below.
