This term, in SESE, we were learning about the Vikings. The Vikings lived in wooden longhouses, often built with wood cut in places far from home and shipped back to Scandinavia. Materials, animals and slaves were taken from Celtic Ireland to new settlements in Iceland and Greenland too.

We made models of Viking longhouses to picture this and their way of life better. We learned a lot about design and building as well!

In Science we studied electricity and after doing some experiments with static electricity, we moved on to building circuits.

First we built a maze. Bee Bots were programmed in Maths lessons (shape and space / programming) and sent off into the maze. If they went wrong, we needed an alarm.

Then we designed switches to close the circuits that lost Bee Bots would set off. Some amazing imagination and creativity here in first, second and third : )
