Year 4 have learnt about how the Vikings dyed their clothes using natural materials. First, the children went foraging in the playground and collected a range of leaves. They then mixed them with water and added string as part of their investigation, to see if the leaves’ natural colours would dye the string. They also tested this with beetroot, red cabbage, spinach and mixed berries. After analysing the results, they used their favourite dyes to dye their own material, just like the Vikings would have done!
