Our Spring Term topic will be 'Vicious Vikings'. We will be travelling back to the time of the Anglo-Saxons, before learning about the invasion of the Vikings and the battles with the Normans. We will also be developing our geographical skills through our residential trip to Hathersage.
Read below to find out what we will be learning about in the different subject areas:
Geography and History: In our Geography lessons, we will be securing our map-reading skills and participating in stream studies. We will explore the outdoors through orienteering courses and participate in fieldwork studies. Our History lessons will focus on the Viking era.
Art and Design Technology: As part of our creative learning this term, we will be creating woodland pictures and replicating the sounds of the stream. We will demonstrate Viking battle re-enactments and creating shields and Viking longboats.
