Year 3

At the end of Viking Day we had to, sadly, bury our Viking Chief and his Viking Queen. Chief Henry of Norton and Queen Ecem of Norton were laid to rest with all the equipment (swords, pots, tankards, shield, etc) they would need in the afterlife; Valhalla. 

Today, we have been incredibly lucky to have Kathryn from 'The History Van' ( to carry out a Viking themed day.

We started off with a timeline and discussion about the Vikings. Following on from that the children had the opportunity to become archaeologists and museum curators.

After that we were able to make swords and write in runes. This afternoon was a success with a carousel of activities and the opportunity to explore games, clothes and armour.

The children have had a fantastic day. Thank you to the parents for your support and for going to so much effort with the wonderful costumes.
