Year 4 have a had a fantastic week exploring the Viking world and learning about the Viking Gods. They also enjoyed re-enacting a Viking invasion. Dramatic expression was in abundance as the children adopted their character roles and perfected the Viking lifestyle brilliantly. It truly was a fully immersive and fantastic week of learning about the Vikings.  

 

Year 5 are still in de-Nile about history week coming to an end, but what a fantastic week it was!  The children transformed themselves into an Egyptian pharaoh focusing on the shapes, patterns and eye make-up that played a big part of Egyptian life. When it was time to get active, the children showed a great determination and perseverance in learning some Egyptian dance moves to form their own sequence.
