Morning Class 3 – only 2 more days until half term! Well done for all your work yesterday, I loved your fab stories and your outfit designs, plus even more snow photos!! A bit of a different day today – if you solved the messages in the Anglo Saxon Runes on Tuesday, you will know that today is….
Today we plan to move onto Vikings through a fun day of building, battles and invasions. (Feel free to wear your outfits you made yesterday if you wish!) – go and get busy!!!
A quick link that may be interesting to you….The Jorvik Viking Centre have set up a livestream at 10am and 2pm. You may wish to have a watch; the link is below.
- Building Battle Equipment
- Building your den or hideout
- Plan and carry out your ‘steal’
- Animation of your battle (optional)
If we are going to have an Anglo-Saxon or Viking battle, we need the equipment to do so.
Start by watching this video about helmets to give you some ideas…
Your first challenge is to make a shield, helmet, sword and/or axe. Think carefully about your designs and then use some card to make them. Remember to add your runes message from Tuesday so we know your equipment belongs to you.
Here is a link to show you how to make a shield… https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/ideas/kids/how-to-make-a-viking-shield
And one for a helmet… http://www.stormthecastle.com/how-to-make-a/make-an-easy-viking-helmet.htm
Feel free to follow them or just come up with your own design – I can’t wait to see your finished pieces of battle equipment – remember to post your work on seesaw.
Your next challenge is to build your den or hideout. If you are going to attack, you need somewhere to base yourself until the correct moment to make a move. You might want to use cushions in the living room or get outside and build your den in the garden. Wherever you choose, be sure to post a photograph of you inside your den – maybe you could have your lunch in there! (although you may get a little cold outside!)
Your next challenge needs a bit of imagination, I want you to carry out a ‘steal’ or ‘invasion’. You can do this in a number of ways. First you need to make something to ‘steal’ this could be a piece of jewellery or some coins.
Next, you could ask a grown up to hide your coins or you could hide them and make a map for someone to find them or you could hide some and a brother or sister could hide some and you could try to find each others. I can’t wait to see how you decide to do this task. Please let me know how you got on – take photos!!
Activity 4 (optional)
Your final challenge is to create an animation of your battle/a viking battle. You could use 2animate on Purple Mash, you might want to create an animation using lego or even make a video using yourself using the equipment you made this morning! It is up to you. Our computing topic after half term will be animation so I can use this task as an idea of our starting points after the holiday.
I hope you enjoy the day and have lots of fun becoming a Viking. I can’t wait to see how you attacked the day on seesaw – please post lots of photos – I’m missing you guys!! Mrs A
