Year 4 - St Martin de Porres
In Year 4 this term, we have been learning all about the Vikings.
Hailing from the area of modern Scandinavian countries (Denmark, Norway, and Sweden), the Vikings were fierce warriors best known for raiding the British coastline. The Vikings were famous for sailing huge distances between the years AD 800 and 1066, where they would raid but also trade with people from various countries.
We watched a video called ‘Jotun’ which inspired us to produce a piece of creative writing. Our stories are about a Viking warrior, on a quest to find a missing sacred stone fragment. The stone was a symbol of the Vikings’ success in battle! We used our imaginations to create an exciting plot and included a range of adjectives and adverbs to describe the setting and character. Our stories also include a jaw dropping flashback to the warrior’s past! Please read some examples of our writing to find out what happens…
