Year 3 Longships
Year 3 have been learning about the Vikings and the Anglo Saxons, who lived in this country hundreds of years ago, but came across the sea from other countries.
Year 3 worked hard to design and construct their own Viking longships, similar to the ones that would have sailed across the North Sea to England. The children noticed that longships has decorated sails, intricately carved heads on the bow and shields hung along the sides.
Each longship that the children made was similar in design, with individualised decorations, just as real Viking longships would have had. They were quite a sight when all lined up together!
