Longboats and Giants.
Last week, the children in Willow Class enjoyed their afternoon’s thinking about Science questions. They investigated the effects of light and shadow and also attempted to build a tower as tall as they could with spaghetti and marshmallows!
This week, the children have designed their own Viking longboat and are looking forward to making it on Thursday. As part of our Viking topic the children have been learning more about everyday life of a Viking family in a longhouse and have been writing diary entries in Topic lessons.
Also, this week the children have begun their new non fiction unit. A non-chronological report on giants! Be sure to let your child have some time practising writing at home as well as reading their school reading books.
