Year four visit to Gunpowder Mills

This week year 4 visited the fascinating Gunpowder Mills in Waltham Abbey to find out more about the Viking way of life. They met Viking characters and discover how they battled for the Kingdom of England. They delved into the mind of a Viking warrior, exploring weaponry, invasion and life on board a longship. They joined in with the chores and merriment as they experienced life in a Viking household. They learnt all about Viking raids and their pursuit of treasure, and created their own piece of Viking jewellery to take home. A fine day out was had by all.
