Wk ending 26th January 2018

We have had another week filled with Vikings!
 
In PSHE we have been learning to work together cooperatively with others. On Monday we designed a Viking village, deciding together what buildings were needed and where we would put things. 
Whilst half the class were at Forest School on Wednesday, the other half held a Viking 'Thing'. This is the system the Vikings had for making laws and decisions on justice. It was a meeting where everyone's views were listened to fairly, presided over by a 'law-speaker'.
The children voted for who the law-speaker should be and Jago was successful.
The question: 
What should happen to someone who had been stealing food?
Finally, on Friday we had our Viking Day. The children looked amazing in their costumes. Well done to all the parents for  the effort that had been put into this.
 
We spent the day making Viking shields...
...and making Viking oatcakes.
 
I have attached the recipe below for anyone who would like to make them at home (although Mrs Jones' secret ingredient - cinnamon - isn't mentioned!) Try adding some jam or fruit as a topping to give them some more flavour.
