Side note: We are studying Vikings in history and also began reading Viking Boy (Tony Bradman) as a class read before starting this unit of work (some parts - very few - were censored/missed out due to violence! I always read ahead in advance of reading aloud to the class) but overall they absolutely loved it. Additionally, it helped increase subject-specific knowledge about different Viking topics such as Viking way of life, Gods and the Valkyries.
