This Tuesday, Year 6 went on an exciting trip to Danelaw. Their trip was all about vikings to support their recent studies and the book they have been reading called’Viking Boy’.
Danelaw is a place all the way in York, so at 8:15 in the morning, students came to school to grab a ride on the bus and start their viking adventure!
At Danelaw, Year 6 were greeted by a man called Wolf. He split them all up into four groups and took them into a large room with three tables: two at the bottom and one at the top. The children all sat down in their groups and Wolf started telling them facts about vikings. Soon after, he gave them some viking clothes and directed them to a replica of a viking longboat.
The Vikings used longboats to travel across seas to take land and start battles.
Wolf then said that he could help them and take them to his village. This was only under one condition. We had to impress the lord of the village.
When Year 6 got to the village, they were stopped by a guard. Luckily, Wolf knew the guard so we passed through.
Year 6 had a wonderful day living as vikings: they carried out viking jobs, arts and crafts and wore viking clothing. After a jam-packed day, they returned to modern life and came home on the coach to their jeans, nooks and computer games.
What a good trip!
