Our first topic this year is on the Vikings.  To get us in the mood, Dora made an edible Viking boat!
We made our own Viking boats.  It took us a long time but was worth the effort.
We've also been busy making a class book inspired by The Boy, the mole, the fox and the horse by Charlie Mackesy.  MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW!
It's been worth the wait!  Below is a taster of our book (the first 7 pages).  It will be printed professionally and will cost £2.00.  A perfect Christmas present.  More details to follow about ordering it.
 
Just click on the PDF link to view it.
Even though we're stuck inside, we're still staying active!  We do love bench-ball.
We've been research topics for our information texts in literacy.  We know so much about a huge number of topics!
