Toucans - Viking Workshop
Toucans have had an amazing day learning about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. Ash the Viking taught us about shield wall formations that we acted out. We tried on helmets and found out about weaponry from that time. Everything was so heavy! We acted out Viking travels on the sea in Viking longships and some of the problems that they would have encountered. Two children dressed Mrs Ruffels up as a rich Viking (the children were kind!) She thought the cloak was very heavy and ended up getting very hot. Very good clothing for those freezing days. We hung on every word as Ash the Viking told us a Viking saga with some of the children portraying the characters really well. It was very entertaining. We also learnt about food, daily life and acted out a burial. All in all, a fun packed day learning in the best possible way!
