Year 3 have produced a Viking book explaining all about our current topic and the findings from our extensive research. Working in pairs, each small group decided which particular part of Viking life they wanted to explore. We then used a mixture of books and online resources to research our chosen area.
We encouraged the pupils to have a focus to their work. We wanted to think about how this would be presented in the book, and what would make for an interesting read. Year 3 came up with the idea of breaking different parts of the research down into headings, as well as grouping together similar information into a single paragraph.
Topics that we have looked at include clothing and jewelry, food and drink, and Viking Gods and religion. You can hear a little more about how we went about Viking research in the podcast below.
