Viking family day – home challenge
On our family day we had a visitor with us. She was called Sam. First we had our parents to come find us. Then we had to sit at a table with our parents or with our teacher, Miss Sales or Miss Edgar. Sam shared with us her weaving wheel and she let us have a go.
She showed us a pattern that she had drawn. We had to get a weaving board and then a plastic needle. The children needed to go get two different colours of wool. Sam started off by showing us how to begin.
First we started by going up and down round the corners of the board. Secondly, we used our second piece of wool and we went under the bottom piece of wool and then over. Then we needed to get a pattern if you wanted or do a Viking alphabet and make your own name.
Miss Edgar and Miss Sales gave us a home challenge. There were two challenges the first one was a 60 question quiz. The second one was to make your own Viking boat. It was really hard to choose a winner but they finally found one. 1st place was Ella; Ellis and Leon were awarded runner up. The winner of the Quiz was Rueban. We had a very exciting day and it was also fun to complete passport tests alongside our parents!
