Year 3/4: Viking Art
The topic for the Year 3/4s this half-term is A place to settle and, over the last two weeks, we have been investigating Viking art of the 8th - 11th Centuries.
We looked at the Oseberg ship and decorative combs found in the Orkney Isles and identified characteristic features of Viking art.
The children used their sketchbooks to record what they had learned and to practise drawing in a similar style. In the following week, they used their sketchbooks to help them create a piece of work for display:
We also learned about Younger Futhark runes and wrote our name in the Danish long branch form.
The children really enjoyed this invesigation. Next week, Viking longboats!
