Viking Visit

As part of The Grim Falfest we had an exciting visit from some Vikings!

They told us the local legend of Grim and Havelok in a very interesting whole school assembly.

It was great to welcome visitors to our school and learn about historical events and legends with such a strong local significance.

R- It was good to find out how Grimsby got it’s name.

H- Grim saved Havelok when he was a baby.

T- Havelok went to work at Lincoln Castle when he was a man.

R- Havelok one day became the King of Denmark.

S- I want to see the Vikings in their boat at the weekend.

Year 2 Hook Day: Castle Making

Pumpkin Class enjoyed making castles out of recycled materials. They had a busy time cutting, painting, drawing and finding the best ways to fix materials together. They also faced the challenge of how they could make their drawbridge open and close.

J- It was hard work cutting out the battlements, but I did it.

G- I made my drawbridge open and close by pulling string. I did this all by myself.

J- I think the turrets I made were too small, next time I would make them bigger.

M- I made a huge castle, it took a long time to paint it all.

J- I made sure my castle had windows and arrow slits.

S- I think everyone did a good job making their castles!
