Welcome to Term 5!
We hope you all enjoyed the Easter break.
This term our topic is entitled “Smashing Saxons” and will be largely History based. As historians we will learn about the invasions of the Scots and Anglo-Saxons in the 5th Century. We will learn about where the invading troops came from, where in Britain they managed to settle and how life changed as a result. We will explore the influence of the Anglo-Saxons on the English language, with an emphasis on the origins of some English place names. We will examine artefacts from the period and draw conclusions about life in Anglo-Saxon Britain. In addition, we will learn what life was like in Anglo-Saxon villages, about typical jobs and about the gods they worshipped. .
PE will be on a Thursday this term so children should come to school in their PE kit on a Thursday only.
Please do not hesitate to contact us via Class Dojo if you have any questions. Please do check class Dojo each week for any updates though this term.
