We worked hard to create, make and play an old Viking Game called HNEFTAFL.

Antarctica phone call

 Today we received a phone call from two scientists, Ali and Sam, working at the Rothera Research Station - the largest British Antarctic facility. We spent this morning researching about Ali and the research station in preparation to ask questions when she phoned at 10am. We must have asked around 50 questions - receiving a detailed and interesting answer to each. We learnt about their role monitoring the skua population on Antarctica.

Our Viking Dance.

Bones, Bones, Bones.

We made skeletons today.

Keldon's Uncle came and showed us some Viking artefacts.

We looked at shields, daggers, and even a sword.

We are incredibly proud of how Acorn Class conducted themselves during the Ceremony of the Planting of the Oak Tree in Dungworth Park.

We researched different things about Vikings and then presented our findings to the rest of the class.
