This term our Topic is

The Vikings

This term children will be learning about the Vikings as the struggle for the United Kingdom continues. Like with their predecessors the Anglo-Saxons and the Romans, children will find out who the Vikings were, where they came from and where they settled. Over the term children will discover why the Vikings got their name and describe why they were so feared having arrived in the UK after sailing across the North Sea in their longships.

Children will also investigate key events linked to the Vikings and as part of the activity will produce a news report on the infamous battle at Lindisfarne. What did a Viking warrior look like and what were their battle tactics will be just some of the questions the children will explore.

Pupils will also learn about a Viking’s daily life, food they ate and their culture through an organised trip which will also require the children to wear Viking dress. By the end of the topic children should be able to describe what the Vikings left behind through archaeological evidence and what this reveals about the Vikings while explaining key vocabulary linked to the Vikings.
