Viking Experience for Years 3 and 4

24th May 2017
In years 3 and 4 this term's main topic is the Vikings.
Ulf Trygveson visited Years 3 and 4 and made this fascinating period of history come to life for the children.  He brought a large collection of reproduction artefacts and in the afternoon we saw a weapons and armour display and took part in Viking spear wrestling.  The day finished with a Viking battle, which was great fun and very noisy.
To get into the spirit of our Viking experience the children made a fantastic effort and came to school dressed as Vikings.  Ulf the Viking said he had not seen so many amazing shields from one school ever, so a huge well done for getting into character!
Thank you to the Friends of Orchard Vale for subsidising this wonderful experience.
