Virtual Viking Visit!

This week, we received an exciting visit from a female Viking from Jorvik in Northern England. We were able to ask many questions to help us learn about what her life was like 1000 years ago. We learnt about Viking homes, jobs, families, games and much more. We also saw lots of interesting artefacts.
