Time line expertise

Following our work on time lines last week, I thought some of you might like to show off your chronological and mathematical skills by making up a question or two about the different periods in history that we looked at. You can make it as easy or as difficult as you like! I’ll give you the key dates again to help:

Stone Age: 15,000BC to 2500BC      Bronze Age: 3000BC to 800BC   Iron Age: 800BC to AD43

Celts: 800BC to AD43                           Romans: AD43 to AD410             Saxons: AD449 to AD1066

Vikings: AD793 to AD1066                  Normans: AD1066 to AD1134    Middle Ages: 1154 to 1485

Tudors: 1485 to 1603                          Civil War & Revolution: 1603 to 1714

Empire & Sea Power: 1714 to 1837       Victorians: 1837 to 1901     WWI: 1914 to 1918

WWII: 1939 to 1945

I’ll start you off with a couple of examples:

For how many years did the Saxon and Viking Ages overlap?

After the Bronze Age ended, how long was it before the Romans arrived?

 

A week in year 6!

In a  week of reading and writing creative funny poems , year 6 joined forces with year 5 and created poems better than Michael Rosen!

This week in marvellous Maths, some people did perfect percentages! Also, a group of  year 6 children did posters of division rules and they turned out to be very colourful! Finally, we all did daring decimals and we all cracked it!

D.A.R.E was best of all: this week we learned about Cyber-Bullying ! Remember don’t bully!

Some people went to church to sing at a concert; they sang 5 songs with Apollo 5 who made music with only their voices and mouths!

We also did Christmas cards and we really enjoyed it! We did  the Winter scene!

Half of us read with Mrs Howard while everyone else was doing Viking sagas like Loki the Joker and Apples of Iduna! Which was your favourite part of the week?
