Children will learn about viking raids on Monasteries in Northern England before writing a narrative text.
The text can be written from the perspective of a Monk or a Viking during the raid of the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in North East England in 793 CE.
In the past, I have introduced this lesson dressed as a Monk in a Monastery with the lights off and candles lit. I play audio in the background of Monks singing (link provided) before acting frightened at the arrival of Vikings coming ashore (link provided).
