This week’s project

If you haven’t already – fisnish your myth. Remember our Success Criteria

When you are finished you could design a book cover for your story and write your own blurb and reviews!

Continue to read up about the Battle of Hastings – look online, there are loads of good videos e.g.

Try writing a short explanantion text explaining why the Normans won. There are 3 or 4 clear reasons – try and explain them as clearly as possible in a formal style.

You could also have a go at building a Viking longship – you can do this out of paper and card (old cereal boxes are good) Try and make it as historically accurate as possible.

Look on line – there are lots of good websites; here are a few:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longship

If you want to have a go at something a bit more serious – have a go at the first text of the reading comprehension in Pack 2 of the CGP tests. You could check you answers with an adult.

Be active

Keep up with your footie skills. Try and walk every day and why not try the Joe Wicks exercise videos on youtube at 9am every weekday morning.

Get creative

If you haven’t had a chance already, finish your Sutton Hoo helmet. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/sutton-hoo

For something a bit different have a look at the paintings of Piet Mondrian. One of his themes was large blocks of primary colours divided by perpendicular and horizontal lines. Here is an example:

You could have a go at one of your own. You could use paint but felt-tips look really good too. You could try your own colour themes if you like!

If you have time….

Remember your garden bird list. Mine is up to 30. It’s amazing what you can see and hear if you spend a little time. If you have bird feeders, keep them topped up. The best time to watch is early in the morning and last thing in the afternoon.

Remember to look out for summer migrants such as Swallows, House Martins, Chiffchaffs and Cuckoos – they will start arriving in the next few weeks.
