WALA the life of a Viking child.

Below you will find lots of information telling you about the lives of Viking children. You need to read this information and make a list of up to eight facts which YOU feel are the most interesting. Then we would like you to design an information poster about the lives of Viking children, which share some of the facts you wrote down.

This poster must contain a Title, Sub-headings,Information labels and drawings of Viking children which could be labelled to give us more information.





WALT: Write and sort questions

Zoom 1

Now that we know how to research effectively and find key information, we now need to think about what we want to include in our non-chronological report. This is your chance to find out everything you've always wanted to know about the Vikings.


TASK: Think about what questions you have about the Vikings and write them down. We will be asking you to find the answers to these questions tomorrow. Try to come up with at least 10 questions. Remember your question marks! Can you use the 5 W's? Who? When? Where? What? Why? Don't forget: How?


Take a look at some of the examples below:


How did the Vikings keep warm in the Winter?

What were their clothes made of?

Why did they raid monasteries?

Where did they settle in England?

Did they keep themselves clean?


When you have completed this, try and group your questions together. Organise your questions under subheadings like the example below:

WALT make shapes.

Zoom 2

Today we will be continuing with area and looking at how we can make a variety of different rectilinear shapes which all have the same area.

For example, below is an image of six shapes which all have an area of 7cm².

As you can see all of the shapes have an area of 7cm² but all look different.


Be careful when drawing your shapes that you don't draw them from vertice (corner) to corner they must be joined from side to side or from top to bottom.


This is NOT  a rectilinear shape AND does not have an area of 5cm² because the squares have been joined from corner to corner not side by side OR top to bottom.
