After designing our own Viking brooches using a design sheet, today, we used clay to make them using our design as a guide. After they have dried, next week, we will paint them.
Viking Trip to Navan Centre
Primary 5 had a brilliant day at the Navan Centre and Fort learning all about Viking Justice as part of the 'Vikings on Trial' programme. We took part in lots of difierent activities including writing using feather pens, making bookmarks using Viking runic letters, handled and saw demonstrations of Viking weapons and acted and took part in a Viking Trial with a real life Viking. The staff at the Navan Centre were very impressed with the level of knowledge shown and the standard of behaviour. Well done Primary 5!!
We worked today on partitioning 3 and 4 digit numbers. We used the practical equipment to help and recorded our work on whiteboards.
