Shield maidens and warriors bring viking history to life in Year 3

Posted: 12th June 2016

LAST week, Year 3 enjoyed a Viking morning, where the day began with Mr McCarthy creating a Shieldwall (using rugby tackle bags!) for the ‘Battle of Ethandon’ re-enactment, where King Alfred beats the Vikings! 

In addition, they designed and made their own shields and pendants.  
To end the morning, children produced a longship collage scene, under the guidance of Mr Ashmore.
All of this work will be on display for our Parents’ Day celebrations, so do pop down to the Junior Corridor to take a look!
