Good morning and welcome to our penultimate week of home learning. We will be finishing our video lessons on simplifying fractions this week with the help of the teachers at the NCETM. Although it's been a few weeks since the last one, it's good to drop back in, having had a bit of a break from it; this helps your memory to reconnect with the ideas and language. You might be interested to know that this is called 'spacing'. Our brains build stronger memory bonds when we are just on the point of forgetting something and then we ask it to try to remember. If you have not worked on any of these videos it would be a good idea to start at the beginning at lesson 1.
HISTORY - Crime and Punishment through the ages
Anglo Saxon and Viking
Children - do you remember that you had a few lessons about this before Lockdown? We began to think about our justice system and you explored some of the crimes and punishments during the Roman era (including the awful crucifixions!) I thought it would be interesting to try and complete this unit, travel through time to find out a little more and end with how we do things today. It's quite a meaty topic and it would be wonderful to do this with your grown up.
So we re-join this theme after the Romans and find out how Anglo Saxons and Vikings dished out their judgements and punishments... hold on to your hats everyone!
Of course I know you are all bonkers about Horrible Histories... so here is their comical take on Anglo Saxon justice
