As part of their topic on Vikings this term, Miss Magdzinski’s class decided to make a life-size Viking longboat! It was not an easy task, as you can tell from some of the pictures below, however , we got there in the end … with a little help from some mod-roc (and Mr Robinson!) It was great fun; we made the structure out of chicken wire, covered this with mod-roc, painted strips to portray a wooden-looking effect, and designed shields and dragons to ward-off enemies! The ship is now safely suspended from the ceiling of class J’s classroom. Would we make quite as good craftsmen as the Vikings … what do you think?!?!
