Our children by our children

Vikings for a day!

Lower IV travelled to Murton Park in York to spend the day living life as new Viking settlers. On arrival, the children (and teachers) were given period costumes to wear and went into role as different members of Viking families. The teachers were given the role of slaves, while the children were the Viking settlers aiming to find work and safety in the Lord’s village. Unfortunately, one of the slaves was badly behaved and ended up in the stocks and received a soaking with water as a punishment!

During the day, the children learned how to guard the village, grind wheat to make flour, collect firewood, and how to make pottery lights. They also successfully defended the village when a Saxon tried to invade. A fantastic time was had by all.
