Birds of prey visit to finish off the Spring term. ๐Ÿฆ…

Wow, what a day! Weโ€™ve had a fabulous day as Vikings. The children made a fabulous effort with their clothes, thank you! Weโ€™ve made trollens, studied artefacts, played a Viking game, create a long ship and wrote this weeks spellings in runes. What a fabulous way to end this topic! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I have been blown away with how amazing the children have been in maths this week. We have been attempting some very tricky multiplication questions but the children have made it look extremely easy! They have all worked so hard and you should all be very proud of them. I definitely am! Well done 5B ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
