Where did vikings settle? Some viking ships braught families to britain looking for land to farm. Good farmland was scarce in the vikings’ own countries.The parts of Britain where most Vikings settled were northern Scotland and eastern England. For 500 years, from about AD 900, Vikings ruled the north of Scotland, the Orkney and Shetland isles and the Hebrides islands off the west coast. In Ireland, Vikings founded the city of Dublin. Viking areas in east and northern England became known as the Danelaw. Viking settlements brought new words into the English language, and new ideas about government too. For a short time England had Danish kings (King Cnut and his sons, from 1016 to 1042). The vikings in britain Southern britain (england) had been settled by the anglo-saxons. The vikings fought the local people, then sailed away.This first raid is recorded in the anglo-saxson chroncile. It was a fierce struggle between english and vikings. The english called the vikings invaders ‘danes’ but they came from Norway as well as Denmark. Norwegian Vikings or ‘Norse’ sailed to Scotland, where they made settlements in the north and on the Orkney and Shetland islands. Vikings also settled on the Isle of Man. Vikings raided Wales, but few made homes there.
The Viking Poem by Sadhiya Begum
Like the fog our movements shall fade,
For those who remember us as unafraid,
Through cascades of waves we travel,
Under stars that dare unravel,
We men of iron and steel, flesh and blood,
Roaming the world like a raging flood,
Our eyes of terror, our stare of death,
Our dreams to conquer with every breath,
Hear us as we scream our glory,
We live our memory, these words our story,
Forget us not and tell our tale,
We Viking men who live by sail,
With screams that muffled the strongest squall,
Our rage berserk feared by all,
To the halls we say Valhalla awaits,
With honors of valor as we enter her gates,
And die forever with shield in hand,
We stood our ground and made our stand
Who were the vikings?
The Vikings came from three countries of scaninvanai:Denmark,norway and Sweden .The name ‘Viking’ comes from a language called ‘Old Norse’ and means ‘a pirate raid’. People who went off raiding in ships were said to be ‘going Viking’.
The viking age in european history was about AD 700 to 1100.During this period many vikings left scandinavai and travelled to other countries,such as britain and ireland.some went to fight an steel treasure.Other settled in a new lands and farmer,craftsmen or traders.
On every face in the market the dust of the city is ecthed in summer heat.

on mothers day I cleaned the house and I got my mum a present. I got her a thing to remember me then I made something special that took me one hour to make. It was very special it was like a diamond. It was shiny and glittery. Then I went upstairs and got a gift and I helped my mum with the babies. The twins – they are 7 months; the boys name is Imaad and the girls name is iba. I helped them to stop crying because they were crying there eyes out. Then I held them in my hand and my sister helped to carry the girl. I will always remeber this special day, hope my mum remebers it too.

It was Mother’s Day on Sunday and I treated my mum to breakfast and then told her to have a day off! I did most of the jobs for her and my brother helped me. I tidied my bedroom, then tidied the kitchen, washed the dishes.
I have written a very special mothers day message to my mum and this is it;
“M” is for the million things she gave me ,
“O” means only that she’s growing old ,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me ,
H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.
