Viking Longboat Rafts

This afternoon in Forest School, Year 5HC created miniature rafts in the style of Viking longboats to link in with their Creative Curriculum topic.

They used weaving and knot tying techniques in order to connect sticks to create the main raft (it was important to think of ways of creating their raft so that it would float.) They then used sticks and leaves to create a sail.

Once completed, the children tested their rafts in a tray of water.
