Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas - Traders and Raiders 

 

The Viking Age began in Britain began about 1,200 years ago, in the 9th century AD, lasting for 20 years. Coming across the North Sea, just as the Anglo-Saxons had done 400 years earlier. In time, like the Anglo-Saxons, the Vikings made their home here. They drove the Saxons out of part of the country and took it for themselves. King Alfred, Saxon king of Wessex, fought them in a great battle, but he could not drive them right away and had to let them have part of the country, called Danelaw. 

 

 The new projects run for the first half of the summer term. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home.  

 

Below are some ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related. 

  • Use the internet to find out about any Anglo-Saxon or Viking invasions in your local area or county (Surrey). 

  • Try making some Anglo-Saxon bread or Viking flatbread (search online for recipes). 

  •  Look at King Alfred’s pledge: ‘I desired to live worthily as long as I lived, and to leave after my life, to the men who should come after me, the memory of me in good works’. Write and design your own pledge – how would you like to be remembered in the future? 

  •  Look at images of Anglo-Saxon coins. Can you design your own coin? You could draw a picture or use modelling clay or other materials to make your coin look like metal – use your imagination! 

  • Do some research about Viking names and their meanings, and make up some suitable Viking names for your friends and family. Remember to describe something about the person’s appearance or characteristics.  

  • Find out more about the futhark or runic alphabet used by the Vikings. Write a short message using the runic characters. They wrote on wood, bone and stone. What will you use? 

  • Imagine you are a Viking skald, or poet. Create a poem to sing the praises of a friend or family member. 

  • Find out about the Sikh festival of Baisakhi (or Vaisakhi). Make a poster or power point to share your findings. 

At the end of the project homework period your child will receive either a bronze, silver or gold project homework badge.

Bronze = a basic piece of project homework was completed

Silver = a good piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of time to complete

Gold = an excellent piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of thought, time and effort to complete
