P4a have been learning about the Vikings. They planned their topic, deciding what they wanted to investigate and how they wanted to learn. They created a Viking display for the classroom and made their own jewellery based on Viking designs but with their own modern twist. They also designed Viking armour and weapons for a re-enactment of the first UK Viking raid at Lindisfarne.
They have gained an understanding of the Viking gods and goddesses through reading tasks and making their own Top Trump game cards.
A connection to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child was made by comparing it to the life of the Viking slaves. The pupils all agree the slaves rights were not being respected and taken away from them.
