An amazing (slightly damp) day out at Perlethorpe Environmental Education Centre with Magnus the Viking. We enjoyed hearing about the history and mythology of the Vikings, made Norse inspired jewellery and constructed Viking settlements in the woods.
Year 5 spent an afternoon in the woods. We collected firewood, lit a fire using a flint and steel and settled down around the fire to listen to the first chapter of 'Viking Boy' to kick off our Viking topic.
Year 5 had a visit from Buddy and representatives from the #speakoutstaysafe programme this morning. We discussed our rights to speak out and be safe, to be heard and to get help when we need it.
