The children learnt what Vikings eat, made Viking bread, researched all about Viking shields, designed and made a Viking Shield. It was a really fun day, a great start to an exciting topic. 

Sycamore kicked off the topic Flying Food Airways by first having a guess at what country they think the food was grown in then carefully checking labels , then looking up the countries using atlases.

Here are some pics of our school trip to Paradise Wildlife Park and then to finish our topic - Lost in the Jungle we designed and made shelters for a jungle/rainforest. We then tested them to see if they were waterproof and strong enough to hold two china bowls. They all passed the test.  (Sycamore year 3)

Sycamore (year 3) carried out a science investigation. They tested rocks to see if they were permeable by dropping water on, more or less durable by sand papering them or how dense by dropping them in water.
