North Tyneside Learning Platform


History Boffins!

Budding historians from Years 3 and 4 were treated to a visit from Viking Expert Richard Stevenson on Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd February.

Richard, otherwise known as 'That History Bloke', spent half a day with each class in Lower Key Stage Two exploring different aspects of Viking life and culture.

Among other things, the lucky pupils were able to hold replica Viking weapons, explore 'tombs' of Viking settlers and write in Viking runes on authentic bees-wax tablets.
What a lucky bunch!
