Year 4 Viking Day

Year 4 have had a fantastic start to their Viking day. We have all been so impressed with all the effort that has gone into the children’s outfits and shields…very creative. Thank you to everyone at home who helped to get these ready.

Here are some great pictures of some of the children’s efforts and our chance to see some real replicas of Viking weapons.
