Willow go Viking!

On Tuesday 16th January, Willow Class enjoyed a workshop packed full of Viking facts, stories and activities all led by our very own 'Viking' from 'Portals to the Past'. 

The children all looked fantastic in their Viking outfits which really helped them get into character for the day. 

Below are some quotes from the children about their experience:

'I really liked the Viking drills and spear fighting.' - Ezinna

'I liked looking at the artefacts; especially the cup made out of a horn.'  - Rana

'I couldn't believe how heavy the chain mail was!' - Bryony

'We liked all the weapons; sword, shield, knife, axe, spear, and arrows.' - Robert and Aaron

'The games and acting were fun,' - Maddie

'It was really enjoyable and fun.  I especially liked the quiz.' - Callum

'Our Viking was a really good actor.' - Dan

'I enjoyed learning about how the vikings conquered all the different countries.' - Isobel

'Best workshop ever!' - Manasvi
