This half term in history we will be learning about the Vikings. We will find out about who they were, where they came from and what brought them over to Britain. We will also learn about what life was life for the Vikings and whether or not King Alfred brought peace to Britain. In science, we will be learning about properties of materials and how these help us to decide the best material to use. We will learn how to recognise when a material has dissolved and what a solution is.
