In Science this term the children are learning about Forces and Magnets. Linking to our Viking topic the children tested their mini made Viking Longships, out of Pringle tubes, to test whether they moved faster on wood, toweling or tin foil.
What a busy week we have had! Sketching/drawing our dragons eyes, creating paper Poppy makes for Remembrance Day, our first African drumming lesson and Pudsey bingo for Children in Need.
(The dragon eyes will be added during the week)
Over this half of term, dragons will be our main theme for lessons, as well as continuing to look at the Vikings.

The children were asked this questions at the very start of our Viking unit and it is really interesting to see there is a big variety in opinions.
