This term we will follow up on our viking workshop that was held earlier this year. We will learn all about the timeline of viking invasions and the places in which they settled and why they settled there. Their religions and beliefs are fascinating and we will investigate the different Gods that rules their lives and the stories and myths that they wrote to describe the world around them.
