Vikings

Children develop their knowledge of the Viking invasion and settlement in Britain.  They will learn about the following:

  • Where did the Vikings come from?
  • Where did they invade and settle?
  • Why did they leave Scandinavia?
  • How do we know about them?

The children will work on time lines and map work. 

Following this we will begin to appreciate why the Vikings were successful and understand about the fearsome Viking raiders. We will learn about the beliefs and weapons of the Viking warriors, the design of their longships and about famous Viking leaders and explorers.

Children will construct their own Viking shield and longships and consolidate knowledge by creating a Viking Quest game.

They also write their own Viking saga. D&T creating and making Viking longships.
