Our Art border for this page was inspired by Viking shields.
A great week back in Year 5! We started our new topic on Vikings by reading example of Norse Myths, finding out about Odin, Loki, Thor and the nine realms. The children used maps to find where the Vikings came from and used iPads to research who they were. I was really impressed with how enthusiastic Sycamore class were when we started multiplication and division of two-digit numbers. We got practical so we could visually see the tens and ones being multiplied using dienes before moving on to using the formal written method to solve calculations. We were very excited to learn about forces and gravity as this half term the children will be participating in secret missions for our science project! Please remember to start bringing in old socks for one of our Christmas activities (the bigger the socks the better).
