Viking Boat


In Spring 2, children have participated in a class-scale project to build a large Viking ship! They decided on their own success criteria and organised themselves into teams in order to complete this challenge, thinking carefully about the time scale involved. This has been a difficult project for the children, however they have completed it with patience, technique and fervour!


They can now enjoy their work as they use it as a quiet reading space within the classroom and they look very pleased with the outcome - well done Year 4!!
