This term, Year 6 have been learning about the Vikings. This week, the children have been looking at their trade routes and what they traded. We spent an afternoon playing a trade game where one half of the class were Vikings and the other Anglo Saxons. Each child had a turn at being either the King or a trader and being a producer. They had great fun and learnt that, as the years went on, the Vikings struggled to maintain their strong trading routes due to the adverse weather and beautiful countryside in England.
