Good Morning Class 4,
I hope I find you all well today.
A massive thank-you needs to be sent to Mrs Altoft who has created the blog post and activities for today and tomorrow, please see the details below:
Today we plan to move onto Vikings through a fun day of building, battles and invasions. (Feel free to wear your outfits you made yesterday if you wish!)
A quick link that may be interesting to you….The Jorvik Viking Centre have set up a livestream at 10am and 2pm. You may wish to have a watch; the link is below.
- Building Battle Equipment
- Building your den or hideout
- Plan and carry out your ‘steal’
- Animation of your battle
If we are going to have an Anglo-Saxon or Viking battle, we need the equipment to do so.
Start by watching this video about helmets to give you some ideas…
Your first challenge is to make a shield, helmet, sword or axe. Think carefully about your designs and then use some card to make them.
Here is a link to show you how to make a shield… https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/ideas/kids/how-to-make-a-viking-shield
And one for a helmet… http://www.stormthecastle.com/how-to-make-a/make-an-easy-viking-helmet.htm
I can’t wait to see your finished designs – remember to post your work on seesaw.
Your next challenge is to build your den or hideout. If you are going to attack, you need somewhere to wait until the correct moment to attack. You might want to use cushions in the living room or get outside and build your den in the garden. Wherever you choose, be sure to post a photograph of you inside your den – maybe you could have your lunch in there!
Your next challenge needs a bit of imagination, I want you to carry out a ‘steal’ or ‘invasion’. You can do this in a number of ways. First you need to make something to ‘steal’ this could be a piece of jewellery or some coins.
Next, you could ask a grown up to hide your coins, you could hide them and make a map for someone to find them or you could hide some and a brother or sister could hide some and you could try to find each others. I can’t wait to see how you decide to do this task.
Your final challenge is to create an animation of your battle. You could use 2animate on Purple Mash, you might want to create an animation using lego or even make a video using yourself! It is upto you. Our computing topic after half term will be animation so I can use this task as an idea of our starting points after the hoilday.
I hope you enjoy the day and have lots of fun becoming a Viking. I can’t wait to see how you attacked the day on seesaw. Mrs A
