As historians we studied the Vikings, answering the question –  ‘Were the Vikings always Victorious and Vicious?’ First of all, we looked at where the Vikings fit in a historical timeline, thinking about areas we have previously studied and significant periods in history. Then we used maps to locate where the Vikings were from and their pathways of invasion. We studied the longships and designed, created and evaluated our own during our DT sessions. Following this, we looked at the lives of the Vikings, studying closely their lifestyles, jobs and homes. We then wrote a diary entry imagining we were an 11-year-old Viking child. Finally we ended our topic looking at the food the Vikings ate and designed a menu. To celebrate this topic we asked the children to create their own Viking projects which we then presented to our loved ones, families and carers.
