This week in English, we have been planning our own Viking myths and enhancing our use of relative clauses and fronted adverbials when writing our setting descriptions. Next week, we will be continuing our work on Viking Myths with a focus on the effective use of descriptive language.
This week in Maths, we have been working with percentages, using bar models to help us. We finished the week by answering different percentage word problems based on different images. Next week in Maths, we will be calculating perimeter of rectilinear shapes and solving problems using our knowledge of perimeter and area. We will also be learning about the translation of shapes and revising coordinates.
This week in History, we have been ordering a timeline of the events leading up to the last Anglo Saxon kings and the Battle of Hastings. We also looked at the Bayeux Tapestry and discussed how reliable and useful it is as an artefact. In PSHE, we have been learning about basic first aid and how and when to use the recovery position. We worked in groups to role play different first aid scenarios and identify what first aid would be needed. This week in RE, we have been comparing different religions and in Design and Technology, we have been building the structure of our Viking houses.
