This term our topic is The Vicious Vikings. We will be learning all about the Viking era in Britain, including where Vikings came from, why they invaded Britain and what they did when they came here. We will be studying the different gods that they worshipped and finding out about their lifestyles such as the food they ate.
This week we have learning about Norse myths and legend stories linked to our Viking topic. We have been developing our extended writing over the course of the week. In Maths we have been using the formal methods for adding and subtracting.
Next week we will be completing a creative writing activity in English, and in Maths, we will be looking at bar models for the inverse operation.
Well done to this weeks brilliant stars!

Extra home learning activity:
In addition to the weekly homework that will be sent home every Friday, there is also an optional homework which will help to challenge and further deepen your understanding of a particular area of our topic that we are studying. The deadline for the homework will be the end of Autumn 1. There will be prizes and rewards for those that complete this homework!
This term we are studying the Vikings. We would like you to complete an independent investigation into a particular part of the Vikings that interests you. This may be one of the following: Viking clothing, food, housing and settlements. It could also be about Viking settlers or raiders, how they travelled across the sea, where they came from and where abouts in Britain they migrated to, the jobs that men, women (and children!) did. Or it could be any other particular aspect of the Viking era that interests you!
You can present your work in any way you wish, as a poster, as a fact file, as a powerpoint project etc. You may also wish to get creative and make a Viking longboat or a Viking settlement!
Here are some useful website links to help you with ideas and information:
