Yr6 go a little "BERSERK" 1
Year 6 have been learning about the Vikings, have made shields and helmets. We have also started learning about "Berserkers", who were the front line of the Viking army. They would run towards the enemy acting in a crazy manner which would scare the them before battle. This is also where the word berserk came from. There are many Viking words still used today, can you name any?

LASER TAG FRIDAY

On Friday (22/09/17) the Yr6 dinner time role models had the opportunity to play laser tag in school. Whilst this was supposed to be a fun game, the children were determined to be the last man/woman standing. After a slight delay, thanks to Mrs Emery forgetting how to start the equipment (thank goodness for Mr Pullin) the children were primed and ready to blast each other with 5000 laser bullets. We were extremely lucky to be lent the equipment and we're hoping to be able to use it again soon.
