For today's topic lesson, we would like you to use your computer to research about Viking Longships. You can use your welearn login to access powerpoint and show your learning as a powerpoint presentation inserting pictures or you could go onto purple mash and type viking in the search bar. There is a programme that allows you to take a picture of yourself as a viking and you can type your research into the text box beside your viking self.

Draw a self portrait of you as a Viking. You can use the internet to see what Vikings looked like. You might want to draw yourself in a Viking long boat and don't forget your Viking helmet!

You could also write a list of New Year's Resolutions. They could be related to the goals we set at the beginning of the year focusing on handwriting, pen licences, spellings or million word readers. Or you could set yourself a challenge at home like helping out more, tidying your room, learning a new skill or being kinder to your siblings!
