History - The Battle of Stamford bridge.

Venture back with us to the year 1066; a year that changed Viking Britain forever. This morning, we had a lot of fun exploring life in Viking Britain and critiquing Viking battle strategies. During the morning, we investigated The Battle of Stamford Bridge in great detail through the use of historical art; the children even, as a group, recreated the Stamford Bridge tapestry. By closely scrutinising the different pieces of art, we considered why the artist had portrayed the battle in a certain way and whether they favoured the English or Norwegians.
