This half term our topic is “ Vicious Vikings”. We will be learning all about the Viking Invasions which happened in Britain and in particular how Cumbria was a place where the Vikings settled hundreds of years ago!
Our Learning this half term
To launch our topic on the Vikings, we had a historian from Tullie House visit school and share some Viking artefacts and some of the clothes that Viking warriors, hunters and villagers might have worn. Take a look at us in costume!
In Science, we will be learning about Electricity including building electrical circuits, and discovering the different ways electricity is used in our homes, schools and workplaces. We launched our topic by creating electrical safety posters to encourage people to work safely with electricity and be responsible in their use of energy.
In Maths, we will spend this half term revisiting calculation methods and deepening our knowledge by applying it to problems involving different units of measure as well as learning about numbers less than one and fractions.
In English, we will be writing Norse Myths, learning how to write a Kennings poem and deepening our knowledge of report writing by creating a class non-fiction book on the Vikings.
