Year 5 Viking Workshop

Year 5 Viking Workshop
Today in Year 5, we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon learning all about Viking invasion and settlement in Anglo-Saxon Britain. We were able to try some traditional Viking foods, such as buttered turnip and honey flapjacks, handle some replica artefacts and watch a re-enactment of combat. Most of all, we enjoyed handling the shields, axes and swords (all blunt, of course)! A huge thank you from all of us to Tom and Ash for giving up their time to share their enthusiasm about this period of history with us.

Year 5 Synagogue Visit

Year 5 Synagogue Visit
Today, the children in Year 5 visited Welwyn Garden Hebrew Congregation. We enjoyed looking at symbols associated with Judaism, exploring the stained-glass windows and finding out their meaning and viewing a real Torah Scroll . The lovely volunteers gave us prayer shawls and hats to try on, as well as teaching us some Hebrew, setting up a Shabbat (Sabbath) meal for us to re-enact and giving us grape juice and Challah bread to taste. As always, the children represented Ickleford Primary School impeccably, showing respect and interest in learning about Judaism.
