Viking Dens, fire and farming…

Another lovely morning for the fabulous Poplars, despite the chilly weather. We wrapped up really well and set off to create some Viking LongTallhouses!!  First of all, we listened to a safety talk and learnt how to carefully drag the long sticks and how to place them, after checking our friends weren’t in the way.

There was a lot of thought put into the dens, and super teamwork too.

Some groups worked on houses for themselves, whilst others made homes for their animals. They thought about how to keep their animals safe-and added fencing to keep the foxes out!

Once the dens were built, some of the children became Viking farmers. They searched in the digging pit, and dug up some carrots!

Whilst this small group took their turn this week to learn how to build and light a fire. They practised using the fire striker, lit small individual ‘fairy fires’, then worked together to collect sticks and make a bigger group fire…
