Peacocks and Kestrels

As part of science week we continued our learning of Living Things.  We were focusing on  dichotomous keys, we began by finding out what they were and then discussed why we needed them to sort species. We looked at some examples and had to use them to identify different insects. We then had a go at creating our own: we were given a selection of liquorice allsorts and we had to create a key that would sort them to make sweets easily identifiable. 

To start off our Viking topic we had a whole day of Viking based activities and we were allowed to come in dressed as a Viking.

To begin the day we completed a quiz to see how much of a Viking we were, then we began a carousel of activities. The carousel included: bread making; rune breaking; netbook research; shield designs; artefact investigations and map skills. Each activity enhanced our Viking knowledge. Next we created some Viking themed maths activities including budgeting with Viking money and Viking code breaking. After our bread had finished baking so we were able to have a taste test, we compared our Viking bread to a modern day bread. To finish we completed our Viking shield designs ready for battle!
