YEAR 4 VIKING LONGHOUSES

 

Year 4 - Viking Longhouses - A Work in Progress

 

Year 4 have been studying the Vikings and now we are building our very own Viking Longhouses.

 

So far we have used saws, drills and glue to construct the frames.  We have just finished weaving art straws to represent the wattle and after half term the fun starts with the 'daub'.  We will be using clay with some straw mixed in.  We have decided to leave out the cow dung, for obvious reasons, although it was commonly mixed in to help bind everything together.

 

Watch out for updates as our Longhouses take shape.
