Here we will sharing some of the work we are doing in class throughout the year.
We hope you enjoy it!
Anglo Saxons and Vikings Topic
We have really enjoyed out topic this term of Anglo Saxons and Vikings. In our History and Geography lessons we have learned about where they came from, why they came to Britain, key historical figures, their beliefs and their everyday way of life.
We particularly enjoyed linking our class reading texts and our English writing work to the topic, including Bonebreaker and There's a Viking in my Bed.
Our most recent piece of writing has been a newspaper report about the events that took place when the Vikings first invaded Lindisfarne in AD 793.
We have worked really hard to present them like a newspaper report as well as including all the features such as headline, lead paragraph and quotations.
Here is a selection of our finished pieces:
We studied some Art work featuring Viking Longships, by Arturas Slapsys and Corey Ford.
We used their art techniques as inspiration to create our own mixed media collage of a Viking longship.
Watercolour was used for the sky, we used sketching and shading techniques for the longship and we used collage for the sea.
Wider Opportunities Music
Currently Kestrels are having a lot of fun learning to play the ukulele.
We have learned how to play some chords so far and can now play Jingle Bells, Shotgun and Rocking all over the World!
