Y4 welcomed Viking Baldbeard to Kings’ Forest this week and learned a few Viking myths. This included how the world began from a giant escaping an ice mountain and how Thor attempted to beat the giants with only his strength. We were very proud of the children’s behaviour as they listened intently throughout Baldbeard’s storytelling and joined in with him.
The children showed their creative side by designing and decorating their own Viking inspired shields during the afternoon. It was lovely to see how many children were helping each other out to either give advice or simply to tidy up.
Mole class even used their bodies to re-create the shape of a Viking’s longboat within the classroom. Some children took the roles of the shield (to protect the Vikings) very seriously!
We are all very excited to explore this topic – children and teachers alike!
