Our topic this term is Vikings! 




Our topic focus this term will be the Vikings. We will look at who the Vikings were, how they came to Britain and when they invaded. The children will use maps to locate the continents of the world and the countries and capital cities of Europe. They will then map out the homeland of the Vikings. In art the children will be studying Celtic and Nordic patterns and use different techniques to create their own patterns. The children will use their computing skills to carry out research about the Vikings and to present their own work to show their learning. At the end, the children to debate the impact and influence of both Vikings and Anglo-Saxons on Britain.






Music lessons will be on a Monday morning, if children have an instrument this will need to be in school for the lesson. Regular practise at home should be encouraged.
