Our Viking Sagas

This is the process we followed to produce our sagas.  We started with an immersive experience where we simulated a Viking experience. Next we ‘mapped’ it and produced a visual representation of the experience.  After doing lots of practice and playing with words we all produced our sagas.

Two of our immersive experiences

After we had received a message from Odin asking for help to find his magic staff Gungnir we received a clue telling us to travel to Britain.  We got our longship ready and set sail.  After surviving a terrible storm we landed in England. We met the leaders of a Saxon village called Barnby.  They gave us our next clue. 

Class 3 Planning Sagas

Class 3 are writing Viking sagas as their writing assignment this half term.  They started by acting out a journey across the North Sea to Britain.  This helps them to imagine how the vikings would have felt.

Active Science in Class 3

Today, Mr Morris showed us how our hearing works by turning the class into a giant ear! Luke started the process off by making a sound – this was caught by the ear (Jordan) and bounced off the ear drum (Ripley); the hammer, anvil and stirrup (Dylan, Olivia and Cyprian) then vibrated the sound to the cochlea (Charlie) which alerted the brain,  via nerves to receive the sound.
