Our main summer topic in Year 4 will be to learn about the Viking invasion of Britain. We started off our learning by sharing the existing knowledge that we have. It was impressive to see that many of the students already have a great understanding of the Viking culture.
One of the areas that the pupils will explore in more detail is the Viking Gods. Year 4 held a useful class discussion about some of the imagery associated with the Gods. One pupil questioned why a Christian cross was used in Viking worship. This is something that we will research further.
Our early work has been to produce some artwork. The pupils were asked to use their imagination to create some art inspired by the Vikings. Any existing knowledge and ideas were added to the paintings.
