From Settlers to Raiders!
During this experience, the children were learning about story writing and description, with a focus on expanded noun-phrases and fronted adverbials. We learnt about the lifestyles, battles and leaders of the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings. The children's English outcome was then to write a descriptive narrative about the Battle of Stamford Bridge. A Battle which changed the future history of Britain and ended Viking rule.
We took part in a Viking afternoon. We learnt about Vikings, raided some other classrooms and wrote our own Kenning poems inspired by the Vikings.
For our History outcome, we had Viking and Anglo-Saxon Day where the children from Four Elms and Maypole schools joined us for a Anglo-Saxon & Viking Quiz.
Reading - We focussed on retrieval and predicting skills when reading Anglo-Saxon Boy.
RE - What do Christians learn from the creation story?
Maths - Place Value
