Year 4 had an amazing time in York on Monday. We explored the Jorvik Centre and were even archaeologists for the day.

Can you create a post explaining what you learnt about the Vikings and what you enjoyed the most about the trip to York?

The vikings

The vikings make food by putting it up in a pan above a fire. The vikings  built there houses  from local material such as wood, stone or blocks of turf. They lived in long rectangular houses made with upright timbers (wood).The walls were made of wattle [woven sticks, covered with mud to keep out the wind and rain].

Everything I learnt and liked in York

I enjoyed the ride in York because it was like going back in time. We could even smell it! They had models in the ride showing us what Viking people would do for example selling shoes , sleeping , cutting and much more. But what was  really exstradanary is that they made a model of a real Viking that died!

I learnt that when they tried printing on a coin they used a stamp. But what was really scary was that they used children to hold a piece of metal (silver) to hammer it in shape,their hands broke. After that they would get rid of them. I was horrified when I heard this.

My trip to York and what I learnt and liked

I enjoyed the ride at York because it was super cool and I couldn’t predict what was going to happen.

I learnt that in the ride,  the way that it was set out, was how it looked when vikings settled there .

The lady who taught our class gave us information from how archaeologists dug underground which helped them to discover how the vikings lived many years ago.

On my dig in Viking times I found Viking bones and huge animal bones.

What I learnt on my trip to York Portia W

I enjoyed the ride because it made me feel like a Viking. I also enjoyed  learning about the coins but I felt sorry for the children because their hands got broken when they stamped the coins.

I learnt that being an archaeologist is a lot of hard work because the job takes a long time.

 I also learnt that archaeologists dig underground to find ancient artefacts.

My trip to York

On Monday I enjoyed going on the viking ride and seeing what it was like in a Viking village. We also saw animal bones which were pigs, cows and horses. We went digging to find some Viking  jewellery and some bones. Vikings use to love to eat oysters. They made pottery as well to put the food inside it  and eat it. Being an archeologist is a hard work. I learnt that Vikings love jewllery and money.

Jorvik trip

I enjoyed when we dug and identified artefacts because it was really interesting to experience what it is like to be an archaeologist.I learnt about what the Vikings did.For example,I leant that Vikings liked to eat oysters because they found lots of oyster shells.I also enjoyed the ride around a Viking village because it was really interesting to see what a Viking village used to be like.

I also learnt about archaeologists and what they do. I learnt that to make coins they would put a silver piece in between two stamps and hammered the top of one of the stamps.A child would hold the stamps in place and if both of their hands got hit by the hammer they would break. The children would then be thrown into a pit and a new slave would be bought.I learnt what it would be like in a Viking village by going on a ride.
