St Aloysius Catholic Primary School Together with Jesus, we Love, Learn and Believe




This term we are beginning a study about invaders and settlers with a focus on the Vikings. We will be looking at the 'BIG historical picture' of England and how the Vikings invaded and settled in some areas. We will discover how to use and make timelines to record key events in history.

Research will help us to find out how they travelled across the North Sea and we can't wait to start designing, making and evaluating our own longboats.

We will designing and making our own shields and swords and we will also be interviewing a Viking from the Yorvik Viking Centre in York via 'skype.'

We will be basing many of our English around core texts, including Neil Gaiman's 'Odd and the Frost Giant'.  We will also be digital learning to write comic strips and to record our learning.

the children of years 5 and 6 will keep up updated thoughout the term, so look out for photos and examples of our learning.
