Year 5 are studying the Vikings this term. Over the Easter holidays, they were busy making their own Viking longships which they could make using any materials that they liked. The children used wood, papier mache, Lego, card, cloth and string. Their attention to detail on the different parts of their boats was second to none with intimidating figure heads, decorated shields and billowing sails. The children have been learning in class about the different parts of a Viking boat, their functions and evaluating whether the longship was an effective method of transportation. The classroom is now full of an absolutely fantastic fleet of longships ready to launch on a Viking raid!!
