Welcome to the Eagles!

 

MEET THE VIKINGS!

 

Our theme for the Summer is Raiders and Traders and we will be exploring How Viking are we?

 

The children will become fierce warriors from Scandinavia and champion ship-builders! Following on from their investigations into material properties in science, they will explore, design, build and test a longboat.

Their longboats will voyage all around the coasts of Europe. The children will combine their new history and geography knowledge with computing by taking and using photos (stop-motion animation) to show how Viking boats voyaged from Norway, Sweden and Denmark to Britain. 

 

Some of the key questions for the theme are:

 

  • Who were the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and why did they invade and settle in Britain?
  • How well did the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings get on with each other?
  • What was life really like in Anglo-Saxon and Viking Britain?
  • What did the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings leave behind?

 

The children will discover that some of the Viking voyages were violent raids, where gangs of warriors would attack towns and villages along the coast or by rivers. Other voyages were peaceful, as the Vikings explored new lands to live and trade in. They will also find out about settlements, homelife, crafts and Alfred the Great, king of the Anglo-Saxons and how he influenced Britain and how he fought against the Vikings.   

 

Please take a look at the Termly Overview to see the other learning opportunities the children will experience throughout this term.

 

Homework is daily reading and weekly Spelling Shed assignments. 

 

I am looking forward to welcoming you back for all our exciting Viking adventures during the Summer Term.

No one should feel left out everyone should feel included.
