Welcome to Year Five

Ofili and Gormley Class

The Vicious Vikings

Our first topic in Year 5 is the Vicious Vikings which as you can imagine has been absolutely thrilling. To start off our topic, we decided to let the children become Vikings for the morning. Beginning at 9.00 on Monday morning, the Year 5s staged their very own Viking raid! Barging into other classrooms, children borrowed luxuries found. Yes, these luxuries were whiteboard pens and handwriting pens! This was an excellent start to our exciting topic where the children have been able to explore the different perspectives of the Vikings and learn the truth behind some of those famous stereotypes. So far, the children have been travelling back in time to when the Vikings first invaded London and writing many diary entries as we discover how the Vikings would have felt before, during and after their vicious raids. Coming up in November we have our very own Viking expert, Ingvar ,who will join both Year 5 classes for the day as we explore weapons, armour, battle techniques, and traditional Viking games.
