Lower Two had a Viking themed day with Portals to the Past last Tuesday. The children and staff all dressed up in Viking outfits. During the day the children learnt about how the Vikings came to Britain and how over time they moved from being raiders to invaders and then settlers. They also studied their beliefs, the roles of men, women, and children in their cultures, and also about them as travellers and traders as well as warriors!

The children played a traditional Viking board game called ‘Geese and Fox’ and looked at and discussed artifacts and there uses. All the children enjoyed the day very much and gained a lot of knowledge from it.
