Viking update

Y5 have had a great start to the year as we are learning about the Vikings! We have enjoyed finding out where the Vikings were from and where they travelled to. Our book, How to Train Your Dragon, has captured our interests and we can’t wait to find out what happens to Hiccup. In maths, we have been working with bigger numbers and making sure we understand the value of each digit. As part of our enrichment curriculum, we have been finding out about Viking bread and soon we are going to have a go at making our own. We have also been looking at forces in science and in our own investigations we have looked at buoyancy – we really want to know how the Viking longboats managed to float! The Y5 children have also been enjoying their extra sessions in Music, Dance, French and Forest School.
