An important questions, asked by one of our children, was....where did the Vikings come from?
In order to answer this question, it was the perfect time to introduce the use of an atlas. We identified the continents and the countries in which the Vikings came from, as well as the different parts of the UK in which they settled.
All of the children were brilliant at using the atlases to identify continents, oceans, and countries, as well as some of the children trying to work out how long it would take for the Vikings to row the distance to where they settled.
We ended the lesson on.....Why did they settle here in the UK? (perfect preparation for our next lesson)
