Panthers have had a fantastic start to the new term; last week they were invaded by a Viking!
To kick off our new topic KS2 were visited by a Viking who taught them about Viking life. The children were really excited to learn about Viking dress, especially when the time came for our wiling volunteers to be dressed in historic dress. We learnt about and tried some Viking games. But a definite highlight of the day for most of us was testing out a Viking axe!
The Viking theme has continued throughout the keystage with the children working with a specialist arts teacher to create Viking long boat art to go with the new Viking long boat table. The class have been reading and story mapping Beowulf.
Another highlight of the week was our forest schools lesson with Ms Mohan. A quick reminder that the children need to bring in wellies and old clothes for Fridays.
