Year 5 Topic Day - Vikings!
The children enjoyed coming to school as Vikings and making Viking helmets, swords and shields. All the students had a fun filled day.
Year 5 has gone on a fascinating journey back in time as they find out about the Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the kingdom of England and how England became a unified country. They will explore where the AngloSaxons and Vikings came from, how they fought for territory and power, and how their fighting ultimately led to the kingdom of England we know today. Along the way, they will also find out what life was like for everyday people living in Anglo-Saxon and Viking Britain, exploring things such as Viking runes and Anglo-Saxon stories like Beowulf.
