Welcome to Year 5!
Were the Vikings that vicious?
This term we are going to be learning about the Vikings! As the Vikings lived in Britain at the same time as the Anglo-Saxons, we are going to learning what life was like here! We will think about how our understanding of history is created and whether this is biased or not. Through using lots of sources and learning about history from different perspectives we will be able to discuss whether the Vikings were that vicious or not.
We will explore Vikings further through art and look at a range of Viking objects which we will use to help use to develop our sketching skills.
We will read lots of texts about the Vikings in our English lessons and use this to help strengthen our reading fluency and our comprehension skills. We will use Vikings to focus our maths skills as well!
It's a very exciting time to be in Year 5!
