On Wednesday 7th February, Year 5 children all enjoyed a Viking themed day in school. Many children came dressed for the part. They were met by Viking John who told them many a saga of battles between the Vikings and the Angle Saxons. The children even had the chance to become Viking warriors. As well as this, there were stalls where the children could weave, make jewellery, paint runes, grind herbal potions, use clay to design their own pots and make their own candles. Later on, they were able to be archaeologists by digging up artefacts from the past. A fun-filled day was had by all!

On Monday 11th December, we came in clothes that children would have worn in WW2 time. I enjoyed it because it actually felt like we were real evacuees and we had a fun time acting out different points of view like being a shop keeper or an evacuee doing the shopping.

On Monday, year 6 came in dressed as 1940 evacuees. I enjoyed when we had the experience of a WW2 evacuee classroom - it was very strict but fun. The activites we did were writing about the equipment needed for air raids for example.
