Year 4 – Who dared to invade Britain?
After discussing the importance of longships for the Vikings, we re-created models ourselves using a template, card, a straw and tape. It was a little bit fiddly to put them together, but they look great dangling in our classroom! Whilst we were making them, we learned all about longships and what great navigators the Vikings were. The Vikings even remembered to put their shields along the side to protect themselves and a fierce animal carving at the front to warn others that they were coming to attack.
