Good morning Year 4, hope everyone is feeling good this morning.

Geography

Today, we are going to learn about the Viking homelands, the routes they took to Britain when the first raided back in 787 AD and where the settled in Britain, labelling and plotting each in turn on a map.

This video below shows you some of the other countries the Viking’s raided and settled in.

Art

Today in Art you have a choice. You can either continue to work on your Viking Longboat from the last lesson – remember you will need to bring this in with you on your first day back as we will be creating a classroom display to celebrate everyone’s work – or you can follow the lesson below which teaches you to sketch a Viking dragonhead. Or maybe do both.

Are you able to complete the challenge of never lifting your pencil off your paper as you draw? Have fun!

Extra activity

Have fun learning the dance below – it’s a craze that’s sweeping the world so we thought it would be good to produce our own video as a school with content of lots of people doing it. If you would like to be in the video record yourself for 30 seconds or so and send it to stellaschool2020@gmail.com

This is the music for you to play when recording your video.

See everyone tomorrow!
