Learning Log - This will be given out on a Monday. Please see the homework overview for the topic for that week.
Our topic for this half term is 'The Vikings Are Coming'. We are looking forward to exploring whether the Vikings were vicious or victorious.
Our topic for this half term is 'The Magnificent and Mysterious Mayans'. We are looking forward to finding out about this ancient civilisation.
We have started our topic by using a relay to gather information about the Mayans. We also thought about what we already know about them and what we would like to find out.
