Y3 Viking Project

Newport Juniors is an active member of the Rushmoor able child group. Each half term teachers from the eight member schools organise events for pupils across the junior age range to work cooperatively on challenging tasks.

On 11th February Year 3 pupils travelled to Fernhill Primary in Farnborough to participate in a Viking project. The morning session enabled the pupils to examine artefacts, learn about everyday life along with discovering facts their fearsome reputation as warriors. Working with pupils from other schools, Newport children enjoyed freeze frame drama activities, Viking quizzes and the opportunity to present reasons for including their favourite artefacts to a museum curator. The morning was fact filled with lots of fun. On returning to school, Newport pupils were keen to research even more about these interesting invaders! As well as the academic challenge , the children really enjoyed working with other pupils and all commented that they had made new friends.

Where shall we place the Vikings in our timeline?
