Kirkhill Primary School

Where are we off to now?

Today we ventured back over a thousand years to the time of the Vikings! We found out some interesting facts about what life was life way back in time…

We discovered that Vikings often had nicknames like Erik the Red and Ragnar Hairy-Breeches! If everyone if your family had a Viking nickname, I wonder what they would be? Leave a comment with your child’s ideas!

We had a good look at some pictures of Viking longships and created our own drawings, adding as much detail as we could. Didn’t your little ones do well?

    Abby couldn’t remember exactly what her Viking name was but thought the last bit was to do with being ‘fast’!

    It wasn’t until she came home yesterday with her name sticker on that it all became clear – Astrid the ‘Swift’!

      Yes, she was determined it had to be something about being fast! Ask her to come up with a name for you…that should be fun!
