Vikings Key Stage 2

Measured out a Viking longship using sticks with a lovely Home Ed group. We were surprised how small the longship  (17m long, 2.5 m wide) was for forty Vikings and that it was only 50cm deep with a 12m x 12m woolcloth sail (16m mast). The longships had symmetrical ends so that they didn’t need to turn in a narrow river or when they needed a quick get away. The ends often had a dragon or snake head.

We then made our own ships for some rubber ducks and went ‘Viking fishing’ in the pond. Glorious sunshine for woodland play after lunch.
