OUR VIKING PROJECT
VIKING COLLAGE MADE BY JUNIORS.
One day in June a man called Mr. Sorenson from Denmark came to see
our viking project. Ten boys and two teachers from Trim, Ireland came
In the project we had written all about vikings. We learned about their
gods, their hobbies, their families, their food, houses and much more. We
also learned about Turgesius. He was a viking who sailed up the River
Shannon in Ireland and raided the monasteries in Co. Westmeath where we
come from. We went on a tour to the
ruins of a monastery in Fore and saw where Turgesius' fort is supposed to
have been. We did a book-report on "The Gold Cross of Killadoo" and a
profile on the characters. We read some viking legends, and wrote
summaries of them.
VIKING LONGBOATS MADE BY JUNIORS
The junior infants made viking boats from milk
cartons. They looked brilliant.
The viking town was made by the 4th class
and a viking house was made by 5th class.
VIKING TOWN MADE BY SENIORS.
We also made viking jewellery
and made rune necklaces. We presented Mr. Sorenson with the letter "s" in
rune and a copy of our project. We also sang songs and said poems for the
visitors. I think they were very impressed. At break time we played
football with the boys while the teachers were having their tea. We had a
long break time and after that Mr. Sorenson planted some roses in the
rockery and we took pictures. He then presented our school with a disc for
our computer. Soon after that every-one went home. We had a lovely day.
