Monday 11th March 2019 – Year 4 Viking place names

Filed under: History,Year 4 @ 4:50 pm

Today, Year 4 explored maps and looked for place names of Viking origin. First they looked at maps of the local area without much success. After discussions, the children realised this could be because the Vikings didn’t settle in the area as much as others parts of UK. Once they had maps of northern Britain, they found lots of Viking names. Today’s activity proved the Viking quote from Hen-Thorir’s Saga C.4 isn’t always true…

That which has a bad beginning, is likely to have a bad ending.

~Hen-Thorir’s Saga, c.4
