Skilled Artists

We have been refining so many skills during our recent art lessons. We have furthered our ability to create compositions which have then helped inspire our drawings. We have also gained confidence with using different types of pencils to create different marks and add shading to our artwork. More recently we created our own wax resist drawings.


Exploring the Vikings

This term, we are studying the Vikings in History. We are asking the question: Did the Vikings deserve their reputation? By the end of the unit we'll all be able to answer this question.

We are also looking at texts about Vikings in our 'Steps to Read' lessons. We are using non-fiction books to find facts to help us understand why the Vikings came to Britain and how they lived. Later in the term, we will be looking at extracts from two novels set in the Viking age.

Some of the children have enjoyed the History option on our homwork sheet and have made amazing Viking longboats. What a creative bunch you are!
