With no snow between us and the museum, Rivendell headed off to Great Yarmouth for a postponed Viking day- and what a day it was! We began with a quick tour of history around the museum and then split into two groups to take part in four different activities. We tried our hands at some archaeology using metal detectors, sailed across the oceans in our imaginary longship, made some bronze treasure for the Viking burial and learnt how to battle. The highlight of the day for many children was squishing the teachers between their battle lines. The highlight of the day for the teachers was testing the children’s defensive skills by launching balls and wet sponges at them!!
We even got the Viking to floss!
