Look how tall our “seeds of hope” have grown. Some are now “flowers of hope” already. Send in your pictures over the summer of more blooms, please.
This week’s home learning for Year 2 and 3 has been science based. They have been exploring liquids and gases as well as floating and sinking. It looks as though it was lots of fun!
What bees and other insect visitors are you getting in your gardens? In my garden I see a lot of white-tailed and red-tailed bumble bees. Here is a presentation by Jensen on his bee visitors. Try using this identification guide to help you spot the different types. https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/blog/2019/05/types-of-bee-in-the-uk/
If you can’t make up your mind whether to pay the Danes or fight them, have a look at how Isla made her decision. She looked at the pros and cons of each option and eventually decided… to abandon the village and run away instead! Do you agree? Why?
Like Isla, Alex believes we should not pay the money OR fight back. Instead, he thinks we should hide the money and trick the Vikings into thinking that we have nothing worth stealing. What do you think? It’s definitely worth considering.
We are learning about Viking raiders and settlers this week. Niamh has built a replica longship, the vessel the Vikings used to dominate the North Atlantic from the 9th-13th centuries. Jensen has made a short documentary about dyeing fabric using plant materials as the Vikings did. Excellent work!
