Year 5 were given a real treat today when Hrothgar the viking turned up at our school and set up camp! He began by a scary raid on our classrooms before taking us outside to show us his weapons. The teachers enjoyed having the opportunity to chose the ‘victims’ so that he could demonstrate how the different weapons were used! We then learnt some vital fire making skills and were impressed by his ability to make fire from just Flint and steel. After that, we were treated to a very entertaining viking legend where everyone got a chance to be part of the narrative.
Once we’d had lunch, we were shown how to play the Viking game of … And year 5 attempted to beat Hrothgar but unfortunately failed the challenge. The day was rounded off by another fabulous story!
Thank you Hrothgar, we had an amazing day!
