Viking Portraits

Another busy week in Owls has seen us learning about the different muscles in our bodies and how they work together in antagonistic pairs. We built model arms to demonstrate how the bicep and tricep muscles contract and relax when we move our arms and Mr Major took the children for a practical session, where we explored which muscles are used in different exercises.

In our English work we began writing our own stories based on Michael Morpurgo’s book ‘Coming Home’. We’ve also enjoyed completing our art work and recording different parts of the story which will be shown in our class Christmas production due out on the website next week. In Maths we have had a couple of assessments to do this week but it has been really pleasing to see all of the children’s progress across the term.

Our Viking themed topic board with the children’s charcoal Viking portraits.
