This week, we would have been having a WOW Viking day in school.
Therefore, for Art this week, I would like you to enjoy designing your own Viking shield.
A Viking's shield was very important. They were used as protection during fights, and were also used as weapons to 'punch' enemies.
Now imagine that you are a fierce Viking warrior.
What would your shield look like?
What colours would you use?
Would it have a symmetrical design or pattern on it?
Here are some examples to help you:
Some Vikings would have had writing on their shields.
This could have been their family name or the name of a God as a symbol of protection in battle.
Vikings used their own letters called 'Runes'.
You could add your name in Runes onto your shield or a secret message.
I can't wait to see what shield designs you all create - have fun!
