This week we are continuing to look at Viking life and study the story and words of the famous poem Beowolf. We are writing poems that follow the pattern of an ancient kenning and immersing ourselves in Viking life on Wednesday when we have a historian coming in to spend the day with us.

Please could all the children come in on Wednesday 27th January dressed as a viking. This doesn't mean going out to buy anything special - an oversized, adult T-shirt over trousers would be great as a tunic and anything that serves as a simple belt would make it even better. In terms of footwear any boots or plain shoes would be ideal. I hope that the children are looking forward to the day, it should be great fun!

If anyone wants to come and help please let me know.
