Welcome to Woodpecker Class! Our teachers are Mrs McKillop on Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Darious on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Our class is made up of pupils from Year 4 and Year 5.


This term our topic is 'The attack of the vicious Vikings!'. In geography we will be learning about where the Vikings came from, where they invaded and why the Vikings travelled to new places. During our History lessons, we will be looking at the attack on Lindisfarne, how the Vikings lived and what life was like for Viking warriors. 


In Science we will be learning about Earth and Space which will be supported with a variety of writing in English. This topic will be followed by Forces later in the term.
