Then, we had to recount the method that we used to plant our herbs.

We used our literacy skills and included imperative verbs when writing our method.

This afternoon, we researched the distances from different countries to the UK. We discussed which countries the Saxons travelled from (Germany, Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands) and thought about the possible methods of transport they would have used to get to and from each country.

We coded a long boat travelling across the North Sea to the UK.

Today in science we looked at the human circulatory system. We reminded ourselves of the different organs that are in our circulatory system and identified their function.

We created animations on parts of the heart or lungs. We used our scientific understanding and used key vocabulary.
