P4B’s Viking Bread Recipe

•3 cups whole wheat flour
•2 cups all-purpose flour
•1 tsp. baking soda
•1 tsp. salt
•2 cups water
•3/4 cup rolled oats
•1/3 cup rolled oats {for sprinkling on top}


  • Mix all dry ingredients and then add the water.
  • Stir all of the ingredients with a wooden spoon until you can’t stir any more.
  • Then, knead the dough with damp hands until flour is completely incorporated.
  • Finally, form the dough into a round, place it on a baking stone sprinkle with reserved oats, and place it in a cold oven.
  • Turn the oven to 190 C , and leave it alone for about an hour.
  • After an hour, pull the bread out of the oven, let it cool slightly, then rip it apart in chunks like a Viking (or cut it in nice wedges) and drizzle honey on it.

P4B’s Week of Learning

This week we all enjoyed making viking bread, many enjoyed eating it. (The recipe will be posted because some would love to make it at home.)

We learnt about what food the vikings ate.

We worked on subtracting in numeracy.

I enjoyed spending time with my buddy.

I decorated my viking bracelet.

I enjoyed writing about the troll and using adjectives.

I enjoyed searching for right angles in the secret garden using my pac-man.

P4B’s week of learning

This week we learnt about Viking long houses. They are made of wood or stone or wattle, their roofs were made of turf or straw. Animals lived in the byre, to protect them from cattle thieves and the winter. Vikings didn’t have glass in their windows they closed them with shutters. The floor was below the ground. The closer you lived to the fire the more important you were.

We used our awesome imagination to create a story about a bird dreaming to get out of its cage.

In music we were learning to read musical notes.

This week in numeracy, we looked at the relationship between adding and subtractions as well as multiplying and dividing.

P4B’s Week

We have been working on our numeracy, addition, subtraction and multiplication.

We started to look at position and movement in maths.

Today we looked at Internet security and safe things to share online.

We learn’t some things about Vikings. They spoke Norse and we still use some of their words today, Egg, Muck and Dirt.

Vikings also did not have horns on their helmets, that was made up.
