Gregolf the Viking Visits Year 5!

The sound of a Norse horn was heard throughout the school on Thursday 11th January, as Year 5 had a visit from Gregolf the Viking, who introduced the children to aspects of Viking life and society.

The children took part in three sessions. In ‘Raiders’ they got to handle Viking weapons and shields, re-enacting warfare movements and tactics: During ‘Toys and Games’ the children learned how to play the Viking playtimes of Nine Men’s Morris(similar to skittles) and Kubb, a three-in-a-row game of skill and strategy. Lastly, in ‘Traders’ they also got to spend Danegeld (Viking coins) and they got to touch and explore different replica objects, such as lanterns, clothing, bone combs and hunting horns.

Much fun was had by all, as the children gained a valuable insight into Norse life, circa 1013AD.
