Herons Week 4 Summer learning

English and History together

Use your best writing skills- using all those conjunctions (list provided below) in your history research writing  a REPORT about the Vikings.

Answer this question:

What evidence is there that the Vikings came to Norfolk?

You need to include:

10 marks for dates  – chronology!

20 marks  for Artefacts and what they tell us about life in Viking NORFOLK- (You could include a few photos,drawings- but remember this is primarily a history writing task not art or how good you are at cut and paste)  You can handwrite/type/powerpoint but there must be lots of writing!!!  This would normally take three or four afternoons at school as a BIG WRITE!

20 marks sentence construction

10 marks spelling and punctuation

10 marks introduction ( tell me what you are going to show/ each paragraph will be about)

10 marks main part of REPORT

10 marks conclusion  (very important – don’t add new stuff- summarise what you found)

10 marks presentation/overall look of piece

Remember it is about NORFOLK and Vikings so don’t write about York, long ships, children, food  etc unless you can link it to NORFOLK  – remember the Egyptian pyramid writing task you did and lots of you write about Tutankhamun…???

Here are a few links to get you started – maybe even enough- but you may find out more interesting things!
