Were the Saxons Really Smashing?
This term we will be investigating who the Anglo-Saxons and Scots were and why they invaded Britain. The children will be analysing historical evidence and artefacts to make claims about the Anglo-Saxon culture. We will also look at how Britain has been shaped by their invasion in regards to place names and religion.
In English, we will be using the novel Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo to understand how characters are portrayed and then write effectively for our readers, using some of these skills.
Our Science lessons will focus on Earth and Space this term. The children will look at our solar system and explain the theories of movement. Why don’t you have a go at looking at the different moon phases?
In Art, the children are designing their own Coat of Arms that represents them. We are hoping to copy these on to iron-on paper, so please could the children bring in an old plain white t-shirt that we could use. They will then wear these when they re-enact a battle on the school field.
