LO: I can develop a storyteller's 'voice' in my writing.


As you already know, Viking myths, legends and sagas were stories that were passed on orally or by word of mouth over time until they were finally written down. Today you are going to write an opening paragraph to the saga you watched yesterday: The Saga of Bjorn. As we begin to start thinking about writing our own saga, we need to consider how we can achieve a storyteller's 'voice' in our writing. Imagine that you are sat in front of a group of people,  and you are telling them a story without reading from a book. What language and words might you choose to tell your story?

Look at the following text and decide which words help to create that storyteller's 'voice'. Then, write your own opening paragraph to the story: The Saga of Bjorn.

Tomorrow, you will edit and improve your writing yourself by adding 'archaic' or old-fashioned language to your text. There is no need to email me your opening paragraph today; however, I would like to read the whole saga that you write on Friday.

Creating a Storytelling 'Voice' in your writing.

The Saga Of Biorn


Today, we are thinking about multiplying decimals (Lesson 6 in the textbook.)


I have included a link to the Power Maths Textbook so you can access the discovery task and the share section. I have also allocated any teaching resources that you might need. The White Rose video explains the concepts to be able to do this maths. You do not have to print off the question PDF, you can just write down answers on a piece of paper if you like. If you need any more help please, email me:

Art and design

Last week, you created a Viking portrait. If your portrait is still unfinished, you may wish to continue with that during the Art session today. 

If you have finished your portrait, draw me a picture of Bjorn the Viking which could accompany your Viking Saga (to be written on Friday). You could include his vision of Valhalla!
