This week, to link with our invading lesson in Topic, you're going to be designing your own sword. Swords were mainly for the more important Viking families and had a special meaning, including having their own names that were thought to bring added power to its owner.
Take a look at the Powerpoint that explains about Viking weapons and shows you the different styles you could have for the pommel, grip & guard of your sword. There are some videos that show Viking weapons in museums to give you some ideas too.
Sketch a design first of all, and then if you want to, have a go at making it - just maybe with cardboard and tin foil rather than metal!
I've also included a 3D model that you can use for a sword and an axe if you would like.
Let me see your sword when it's finished - think of a good Viking name for it too!
Continuing to look at the creation stories of different religions, this week it's the Islamic faith. Remind yourself of the Judeo-Christian one from last week and then compare the two - what's the same and different about them?
The Powerpoint explains the Islamic story and you've got two match up and order activities to do as well.
Some more coding, with a difference! Can you control the characters to create a dance party?! Send me a video of their dance on ClassDojo so I can see your finished piece!
As always, give Joe Wicks a go in the mornings and try his 'Wake Up With Joe: Day 4'.
This week's dance task is to 'Move to the Beat'. Watch the YouTube video about how to complete the task and take a look at the document below that explains it too.
