The Junior Girls in Year 5 were excited to take part in a workshop that brought their mathematics and history lessons together. They were challenged to use their maths knowledge to create basic shapes, such as triangles, pyramids and cubes, using bamboo poles. The class then used these simple starting pieces to make much more complex structures.

By the end of the each session, the girls had built a huge Viking longship that was large enough for the whole class to sit in and row!

On the same day, girls had the opportunity to discover more about the Viking invasion of AD 793 with a special visitor. They designed board games, made clay lamps and trained as Viking soldiers.
