Year 5 - Viking diary entries

As part of our history topic on ‘Anglo-Saxons and Vikings’, Year 5 have written diary entries from the point of view of a Viking invader or settler.


The children described their journeys from Scandinavia to England and then outlined their experiences on these shores. Some described their experiences trading with the Anglo-Saxons, while others described battling the indigenous population and taking prisoners to use as slaves.


All the children produced excellent writing.
