In today’s Forest School session, Class 5 became Viking raiders! First we rowed our longship to an island and had to collect 8 bags of treasure which were scattered around the field. We took the treasure on to our ship but then we were shipwrecked! The children learned about how the Vikings would hide their treasure to keep it safe. We split into groups and took one bag of treasure each, and hid it somewhere safe. Then we had to create a sketch map of the field with instructions on where to find the loot. We recapped how to use a compass and included compass directions in our instructions, which were written in Viking runes. Finally, we swapped treasure maps and had the challenge of finding each group’s treasure by following the map and the instructions.
