    I am teaching this topic for the very first time and starting it half way through..as I am covering for a teacher at the moment. Does any one know of any good resources, websites etc as I want this to be a fun and interesting topic to teach. I am currently looking at Viking Laws but there doesnt appear to be much on it?

    A quick search has revealed that there's a lot out there to look at!
    Look at what's in the TES resources:
    https://www.tes.co.uk/TaxonomySearchResults.aspx?parametrics=42198,43279,43603&event=23&mode=browse
    The Herts Grid for Learning has some links:
    http://www.thegrid.org.uk/learning/history/ks1-2/resources/units/index.shtml
    Topic Box:
    http://www.topicbox.org.uk/History/Vikings/
    and finally:
    http://www.woodlandgrange.leics.sch.uk/iwb/ks2history.htm
    I could go on, but these are all really good places to go to first - I'm sure you'll find lots more!
    (A whisper - probably a typo - but no apostrophe in Vikings)

    Have found this really good site which has resources linked to the book Grim Gruesome Viking Villain: Trolls Treasure.
    It has a section about Crime and Punishment.
    http://www.grimgruesome.com/VikingScotlandTeachingIdeasTrollsTreasure.pdf
    This is the book on Amazon:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0953745457/wwwgrimgrueso-21
    This is the website for the series. Have a look around it - fun facts and activities.
    http://www.grimgruesome.com/index.htm
    How the books can link with the Literacy Stategy:
    http://www.grimgruesome.com/SCHOOLS.pdf
    Hope all these links, together with the ones in the other post are helpful.
    Have fun!

    Wow you have been very helpful...i was mainly struggling with the law side of the Vikings I just cant seem to find any videos on it which would have been excellent. I like the novel and I hope to purchase that tomorrow and although I wont get a chance to use it with my current class, I do plan on using it again when I teach it in the future.
    Thanks again :)

    Have you or would you use all three books with a class and use and read in order or just book three?
     
  8. There's a chidren's novel spin -off in the Horrible Histories series, about a young monk called Eric (I think) who gets taken as a thrall. Quite informative.

  10. We searched on epals and found a school in Denmark. We worked together on a Viking topic using blogs and letters etc and have now continued to work on other topics.

    Thats a really good idea. How did you start this?
     
  12. If you want any other weblinks, I put this collection together a while ago: https://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/Viking-web-links-3001955/

    Thats excellent thank you very much :). Do you rememeber every finding clips on Viking runes?
     
  14. Can't say I did, but there is one on BBC Broadband and there will probably be something on espresso - if you have it - and Youtube if you don't.
