Welcome to Acorns.
This term our topic is The Vikings. We will be learning all about how they lived. We have already started to make our very own long boat!
We will also be exploring…
Who were they?
Where did they come from?
When were they here?
What did they teach us?
Why did they invade England?
How did they get here?
There is so much to explore and find out about the Vikings. We know that they came to York (Jorvik) and settled here; why don't you see if you can find out something that they left behind? There's plenty to find out about their time here. What do you know? Here are some websites you can explore.

Your child’s homework and spellings will be given out every Friday. The children need to bring their homework book back the following Tuesday and they will be tested on their spellings the following Friday.
Please can you read with your child every night and write a comment that they have read in their reading record. Your child will receive a reading star each time they read at home and after they have read 100 times they will receive a prize.
If you have any queries don’t hesitate to contact me at school.
I hope we all have a fantastic year.
