Were the Vikings heroes or Villians?

This term our History focus will be learning all about the settlement of the Anglo-Saxons and Scots in Britain. We will be taking a look at their life-styles, the importance of their Gods and their culture. We will also be delving into The Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle to take charfe of the Kingdom on England and the influence they had on the names of cities and town in England today.

How to Train a Dragon by Cressida Cowell

This half term we will be taking a look at the exciting adventure of Toothless and Hiccup in the book How to Train a Dragon. This book links in with our Learning Adventure as it is set during the Viking era and takes a look at some of the values that the Vikings held. The children will be taken on exciting journey of discovering the world of dragons. This will be a catlyst for our writing. Manor Park Primary School will have it's very own Toothless landing on the school playground and we will be writing newspaper articles informing Knutsford of this magical event. We will also be writing a letter from Hiccup to his father asking him to kill anymore dragons. This will stem from a class debate about why Dragons are friendly or unfriendly.

In English, we will be focusing on planning, drafting and editing our writing and learning new gammatical concepts alongside solidifying prior learnt grammar knowledge. It is important that we are confident writers.

In Mathematics, we will be taking a look at place value and the importance of place value when we are adding, subtracting and multiplying numbers. It is important that you learn your 12 timetables inside out to help you tackle this part of your learning head on, so lots of practicing at home.... you  can do it! Make sure you are using timestable rockstars to help you.
