This half-term we have gone ‘full steam ahead’ to design and complete our model Viking Longboats. First, we had a terrifying message from a Viking called Erik. He commanded us to make a Viking longboat that could stand the rigors of the North Sea! He wasn’t very nice but we felt like we couldn’t disappoint him! In order to learn about longboats we researched using iPads. Our research also helped us to design our longboats. Once we had all the correct information we could complete our design booklets that would guide us through the making process. We then successfully made prototypes to get an idea of size and shape (this was also the topic of our What Went Well assembly).
