Focus for this week : Leaving the village and the voyage to the raid.
Example for a starter
“ I lay hidden in the storage space under the benches and could feel the gentle rocking of the boat to and forth. The salty smell of the dried fish was overwhelming and I wasn't sure I could stay hidden for a whole voyage. Suddenly the boat dipped and rose violently and the sound of warriors laughing, joking and teasing grew loud. I heard and felt a warrior flop down heavily on the bench above and begin to pray to Odin, I knew it was too late to get off...”
Remember you are just writing about the voyage this week.

This week we are looking at abbreviations
When you think of abbreviations today most people think about sending a text message.
Abbreviations are used when writing names of places, days of the week, months of the year and the names of countries.
I am sure you can think of a number of abbreviated words.
This week we want you to
Keep working on your spellings.
Frequency words group you might want to test yourself on some of the words you have been looking over for the last 5 weeks.
