Welcome to Junior Explorers class page. We hope you have had a super summer break. We look forward to welcoming the children back on on Monday 5th September.


Autumn One - Vikings

Were the Vikings always victorious and vicious?

During this half term we will discover more about the Vikings after learning about the Anglo Saxons last year. First, we will learn where the Vikings originated from and show this on a map. Then, we will learn that the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons were often in conflict with eachother. Next, we will focus on why the Vikings frequently won battles with the Anglo-Saxon and how they lived their lives. Finally, we will learn about their food, weapons and their daily lives. 

In English, we will be focusing on the text Star of Fear, Star of Hope. 

In Maths, we will be developing our knowledge of place value and then moving onto the four operations.
