We had a fabulous Viking celebration on 16 December to finish off our topic. Thank you to everyone that donated to our feast. The children had a great time preparing the food and making oatcakes. We had some great costumes too!






















Here are some pictures of our amazing Viking longships! We worked as a team to design our boats and then made models. Afterward, we self-evaluated our ships and our peers evaluated them as well to assess whether our models looked like our designs and whether we used the materials we had planned to use. We also thought about the strengths of our boats and what we could do to improve them.
























We are having so much fun learning about Vikings! We have looked at who the Vikings were, where they came from and the routes they took to get to Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland. We are now looking at why they came to the UK and how they traveled. We will be investigating the Viking longship and building models of our own longships. We have done some amazing Viking art with Mrs Street and wrote Viking sagas with a partner. We are working on writing a newspaper report on the Viking raid at Lindisfarne and will be writing diary entries from the perspective of a Viking child later in the term.















Our topic this term is Vikings! We started our topic with a discussion about all of the things we already know about Vikings and what we are hoping to learn about the topic over the coming weeks! 












Oceans and Climate Change

Our topic this term is Oceans and Climate Change. We have been learning about the worlds oceans and climate zones as well as the difference between weather and climate. We are looking at the ways in which weather affects our lives and have built our own rain gauges and anemometers to measure rainfall and wind speed over the next few weeks. We are also investigating the effects of plastic pollution on our oceans and are learning how we can use persuasive writing to promote change. We will also be preparing to take part in a debate about climate change towards the end of the term.
