Viking Villagers Trip to Compton Verney

posted in: Year Five News | 0

On Friday Ock Class enjoyed a fantastic trip to Compton Verney where we were Viking villagers for a day!  After ‘the long journey from Scandinavia to England’ we chose a good spot to build our settlement, always keeping an eye out for pesky Anglo Saxons!  We then had a go at some everyday Viking tasks such as preparing bread, lighting a fire, building a shelter, constructing a wattle and daub fence (for an animal enclosure or a toilet!) and training to be fast and strong warriors by playing the Viking game Kingy Bats. We finished the day by sitting around the campfire, handling some Viking artefacts and thinking about the kind of stories the Vikings would tell.  There was even a Viking wedding so our leader Emma was finally able to wear her hat!
