Year 5 2019 - 2020

Mrs Babinska

Welcome to Year 5 

In Spring I, we will be learning all about the Vikings.

Our topic is Raiders or Traders.



Experts Team: Historians  and Writers

Client: Scandinavian Publishing Company

Commission: create a Zigzag book

Context: The team produce a balanced, illustrated Zigzag book for a Scandinavian publisher, having looked at differing views of the Vikings. They create their own graphic organiser, having first processed information cards giving then opportunities to classify existing knowledge and add new ideas from recent research. During the research, the children realise that people differ in their view of the Vikings, they can show that they are aware of both arguments; they can also explain that the term raiders describes an early part of their contact with Britain whereas ‘traders’ relates to a later stage.


Important things to know:
