Year 5 Autumn Term

Year 5 have entered the snowy climates of Scandinavia and followed the fast-flowing fjords to learn about all things Viking. We have discovered why they had to leave their harsh homelands in search of pleasanter climes and more fruitful farmland. We created the Taiga Biome in a box to aid our persuasive writing and sculpted our own secondary artefacts using primary sources. We have discussed their bloody past and whether we can really trust the evidence – were they really as bad as Alcuin’s letters described?
