This week has been another great week in Team CB!
We have explored the features of a myth and done a great range of reading around Viking myths! We have been busy watching clips that tell the story of some very famous Viking Sagas such as Thor and his Hammer, Odin creating the world and Freya and the Goblins!
The class have been engrossed in finding out all about the Viking lands of Asgard, Midgard and Jutenheim and have produced some excellent description work around this!
We have also been lucky enough to have a visit from Dusty McBones this week! She's an extremely important historian who has been commissioned to deliver a 6 part documentary on Britain's history. She came to Class 4 seeking help, asking if we could do some of the background research for her as she is just so busy!
With that in mind, we have explored how the Anglo Saxons came to England and why the Vikings left. Ask the class about Hengest and Horsa if you get chance they will fill you in!
Must dash! Class 4 are so busy right now I can't wait to see what we do next!
Welcoming back the class after a lovely Christmas break, I am almost certain they have grown yet again! I am now struggling to contend with them all!
The start of a new term marks the start of some interesting new content that we will cover! We will delve into further basic operations and fractions in maths, before shifting to Literacy where we will explore Myths and Legends and even some riddle work!
In our Science this term we will explore Living Things and their Habitats, where we will partake in a nature reserve classification hunt amongst other things! We will then dip into looking at animal food webs and food chains to understand why all animals are important!
During our topic sessions we will explore the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings! The children are very much excited at the thought of this and can't wait to find out what life was like back then!
With so much to look forward to, I almost forgot to say what a fantastic first week back we have had! We have started some preliminary investigations into the Anglo Saxons to help us with some Myth writing next week.
We have also began looking at division using a formal written method which the children are working so hard on!
Keep up the good work Team CB!
