Still image for this video
Today's video is a longer one than usual but it is split into 2 tasks! You might like to print or draw yourself a copy of the mindmap that is uploaded under this video to use during the video to make notes. There are also links under this video you might like to watch for some extra information and facts :)

Find your Literacy group mind map for task 1. For the second task, if you are drawing the Longhouse and need some support, there is a longhouse on the ppt labelled for you to use. There is also a word bank I have made for anyone who needs support with spelling the key topic words :)

Topic Tuesday - 19th January - Viking Longships!

Topic Tuesday - Viking longships!


I apologise but the video about Viking longships used in the lesson below didn't screen share correctly and you can only here the sound. If you would like to see what Orm is talking about instead of just listening to his voice, click here - Viking longships - KS2 History - BBC Bitesize smiley


Task 1: Complete the Viking Longship comprehension or labelling activity using the information sheet


Task 2: Make a Viking Longship! Your challenge is to make a Longship – this could be from junk modelling (cereal packets, plastic containers etc), or you can cut out the Longship plan in this pack. If you use the template in this pack – cut it all out first, then fold along the dotted lines as it says on the instructions, then glue or stick the parts in number order (glue ‘tab’ 1, then 2, 3 etc). Does your Longship float? You could carry out an experiment like we did in Science last term. How many Lego bricks or paper clips or pencils does it hold before it sinks? Maybe you could decorate the ship like one of the images below. Good luck!

Mindfulness Matters! (12.01.2021)
You could bring these to colour, you could take a screen-shot and edit the photo on a phone, tablet or computer...or you could create yourself!  You are all superheroes for the way you are dealing so incredibly well with the the current situation.  You are showing resilience, determination and fantastic attitudes.  Year 5 are proud of you all, so take some time out of your day and enjoy switching those busy brains off with some mindfulness colouring 

Year 5  Team : )
