Today saw P1/2 involved in lots more Viking activities! In the morning we listened to Stephen Renwick talk to us about Viking life. He told us about Viking clothing, weapons, money and trading and answered lots of our questions. P1/2 listened so well and answered questions really sensibly.
Then we went to see Esther Renwick who is an archaeologist. She talked to us about her job and told us about how we “know” about the Vikings. She showed as a pretend excavation site and how when you go down through the layers, you may come across things from the past, going further back in time the lower you dig.
In the afternoon, we talked about Viking runes and practised writing our names as we would have done years ago. P1/2 did this with ease! We wrote our names on foil and made Viking type pendants.
