In History we learned about the Vikings. We studied the Vikings under the following headings:
Who the Vikings were
Viking men and women and the work they did
To compliment this work we read the novel “The Gold Cross of Killadoo” by John Quinn. It is set in Ireland in the summer of 990 and follows the adventures of brother and sister Eoin and Derval who become entangled in a Viking raid. We illustrated our own cover for the book.
We also designed and made our own Viking shields.
