Year 5 are going to be setting sail in our exciting topic titled 'On the Longboat'. Throughout this
topic they will become historians and immerse themselves in the life of the Vikings. They will be
given opportunities to investigate and interpret the past, alongside building an overview of world
history. Free-writing will enable the children to be creative with their understanding of the topic
and to present it in a written form of their choice. Keep your eyes peeled for our Viking topic
displays and don't forget to vote for us again on Twitter!
