Topic: This week is all about Vikings as warriors. We are going to be finding out about their belief systems, armour and weapons. We know that they were very successful raiders so this week we will find out more about this.
DT: We will be designing our own Viking shields this week. Using colours, patterns and Viking runes, we will choose how we want our shields to look. We will also be thinking about how we want to make our shields. It would be great to be able to use big pieces of wood, but will this be practical? What could we use instead?
Literacy: We have read chapter one of our new text for literacy, 'The Last Viking'. Based on true events, the story so far has shown our main character watching the Vikings approaching the land by sea. How do you think she is feeling? We will be writing a letter to our families this week as if we are a monk in a monastery who has survived an attack.
Maths: We will be comparing, ordering, adding and subtracting fractions this week.
PE: We will have FOREST SCHOOLS on Monday afternoon and our usual PE lesson on Wednesday afternoon this week. Please wear appropriate clothing on these days.
Booster Club: I am no longer running the spelling and handwriting boosters on Tuesdays and Thursday mornings so thank you to those children who were attending but you no longer need to come early on those days. I am working with other children this term on Tuesday after school for maths. This is by invitation only. Hopefully, everyone has been contacted now and I have heard back from you all. A reminder that this will be 3:20 - 4:20 every Tuesday for 6 weeks, then I will review the progress made and be in touch with you all.
