As I have had a lot of positive feedback about the use of the powerpoint presentations for Maths, I have planned to continue to use this method going forward. 

Remember to read through the questions carefully and that it is okay to make a mistake! 


Today we are looking at decimals, they are really important as we use them in everyday life, money, measurements, time! 

Complete the powerpoint and then choose the option you would like to complete, I have added an extension (it is completely optional and you do not have to complete it)

However, they were often raided by Vikings, who came to steal resources before returning home... 


Today I would like you to watch the BBC clip about the Vikings and then create a Viking shield! 
I have including some examples of Viking shields, a template if you want to use it or you can get creative and make one in a unique way... (e.g. lego, junk model, using card etc.)
