Term Two

Week One

We are very excited to be back to school and to see all of our lovely children. We hope you have all had a lovely relaxing week.


This week we will be looking at a new book in English called Hack and Whack, this will introduce the children to who the Vikings are, and what they got up to. They will look at what is different in the pictures to our lives. We will also be looking at diaries and the key points, this will help us at the end of the week when we write our diary entries as if we were children in the Viking era.


In Maths we will be looking at addition and subtraction with three digit numbers, the children have access to use the denies and other resources. They will learn more about exchanging and how this works using our resources.


In R.E we will be looking at Christianity, they will be looking at what Christmas means to us and what it means to Christians.


In History this week we will be learning about who the Vikings were. We will be researching about the Vikings and what they looked like. The children will then be creating a picture of the Vikings and labeling all the key points, for example, what their clothing was made from/ what it was called, their weapons and where they lived.


In Science, we will be looking at investigating rocks. The children will be comparing and grouping together different types of rocks on their appearance.


We will also be completing some drama this week, we will be looking at how the vikings might move, what they might of said, battles and family life. We will be using all of our research and knowledge from the week to create scenes in small groups.
