We have had a super busy start to year 5! In topic we have learned all about the Vikings, we created our own clay amulets and have research what life was like to be a Viking, we also used all our new information to create a quiz in ICT complete with hyperlinks for our intended audience.
In Design Technology we analysed and created our own Viking carts out of wood. Our Viking carts move and have a moving handle because we have used wheel and axle to create a moving mechanism.
After our science experiment where we created boats, we discovered that streamline boats worked much better- that must be why Vikings used long boats!
This was one of many experiments we did this term, we also tested our very own Viking carts to test the friction of different surfaces!
Have a look at our photos from Autumn 1 below :)
