Have you been down to the woods today??
Anyone that was out strolling in Harewood woods yesterday would have been in for a big surprise. A Viking Clan had set up camp in amongst the trees. Class 3 had an excellent day thanks to Beth from Forest Found. Beth created a day of activities linked to our learning on the Vikings in Britain. The children baked bread on the fire, carved weapons, built dens and learnt how to weave. Beth also provided a huge canvas ‘longhouse’ so we could shelter from the worst of the weather.
The class also had chance to be Viking craftsmen – creating their own shoulder sacks which they used to transport their lunch to our clearing in the woods.
Many thanks to Mr.Pinnington and Mrs.Jarvis, who gave up their day to time travel with us; their skills were exploited to the full! The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and it was fantastic to see them putting their Viking knowledge to practical use. It provided a memorable end to our study of the Vikings.
