Viking Longships

As part of our “Travelling through Time" topic we also looked at the importance of longships for the Vikings. Longships allowed the Vikings to travel and trade to different countries and by doing this they also settled down in new areas. We looked at how the Vikings could spend days on the ship just to travel to their destinations and how important team work was to help them reach their destinations safely. Class 6 had a practise at imitating longships, thinking about the layout, the positioning of the people and the rhythm of the oars.
