Topic - Vikings


In this topic we learn all about who the Vikings are, where they came from, how they travelled and how they lived. We love exploring and investigating how their lives were different to ours. We get an opportunity to visit North Down Museum to find out about the Vikings that lived in Bangor, and have the chance to sit inside a Viking Longhouse! 

We also learn about Viking gods and mythology through this topic, and read 'How to Train your Dragon' as a class novel.
