Spring 1 Vicious Vikings

Spring Term 1

Vicious Vikings ?

1000 years ago, the Vikings were coming our way, and it was going to mean trouble...

 

Meet Eric The Red, a viking king who earnt his name for more than his blood red beard. Vikings are known for this violent success, fighting their way across Europe and defeating all in their path. We look deeper and find that they were also great farmers, inventors, and brave sailers and traders. Vicious Vikings? You decide.

Some ideas for the day!

Viking or Saxon Warrior

  • A long sleeved, oversize plain T-shirt, any colour but muted ones are best. Borrow your dad’s or big brother’s.
  • A thin belt, leather or fabric. A plain tie-belt from a dressing gown will do at a push.
  • A pair of plain dark leggings or jogging bottoms
  • Plain dark shoes or short boots

Viking Villager

  • A plain coloured long dress or top and skirt
  • A plain long tabard-style apron (this can just be a rectangle of fabric with a hole cut in it for the head), or at a push, a plain kitchen apron.
  • A thin belt
  • A pair of round or oval badges or brooches, one to be worn on each side of the chest just below the collar bone
  • A string of beads to hang between the two brooches
  • Plain dark shoes or short boots
  • Hair plaited in a single plait at the back


Anglo Saxon Villager

  • As above, but without the tabard/apron dress and brooches. The beads can be worn as a necklace instead.
  • A plain headscarf


Simple!
