Welcome back!

We hope you have had an enjoyable half-term, in spite of the sudden drop in temperature!

We are very excited about this term's learning which revolves around the Vikings. As our class text will be How to Train Your Dragon, heroes, dragons and battles will feature too. Further to this, we plan to investigate what life was like for the Vikings: the food they ate, the clothes they wore and the houses they lived in. We will explore the ways in which the Vikings have left their mark - these fierce warriors had a tremendous impact on this country and elements of their ways of life, their language and their battles remain to this day. For example, did you know that place names ending in -toft, -ness and -by are all Viking names? Lowestoft, Swinderby, Oasby, Navenby, Skegness...

Swimming continues on Mondays, while PE will be on Tuesdays this term.

This is going to be an amazing and very busy term, we hope you're all ready!
