It's the Spring Term!
Watch out, the Vikings are here!
Last Thursday, two Vikings from Jorvik came to visit. We were not sure if they were coming to invade or would realise that we too were Vikings!
Fortunately, as soon as they saw us they realised we were friends so we greeted each other and began our day.
As they came from Jorvik, our capital city, they were very experienced. They showed us how to build a strong, warm house; how to treat common diseases with everyday ingredients (including leeches); what weapons we could use or find and how to use them.
We enjoyed our lunch together of food similar to Viking times, e.g. bread, cheese, meat, fruit and flapjack.
Later in the day, in the way of most Vikings, there was a disagreement which turned into a battle! Luckily no-one was hurt and we decided to be friends again.
As Viking craftspeople, we have made a magnificent treasure hoard which is on display.
