This term our topic is:




Through cross curricular and inquiry based approaches to our learning:

The children will be exploring the history of the Romans, the Vikings and Anglo Saxons.

We will learn about the impact and influence these invasions had on Britain and how this is seen in modern life. They will find out about Roman society and how this was structured. The children will also examine artefacts and images of ancient ruins to help find out about their homes, entertainment and way of life. 

We will create timelines to order historical events and how they link to other time periods. They will learn about the sacking of Lindisfarne and how the Vikings influenced the history of Britain. Part of our research will based on famous historical figures of the time, such as Julius Caesar, Boudicca and Alfred the Great.


 We will also be exploring aspects of the topic through our English work.



Each term we produce a Curriculum Map that details what the children will learn. 
The Curriculum Maps are designed to give as much information as possible

about what the children will be learning at school each 

term so that they can be supported at home.

Currently the children are given a half termly homework menu full of exciting and varied tasks to support their understanding of the topics covered in class. It is expected that they complete one task a week.
Homework books will be collected in each Monday. 


Please continue to practise your times tables and read regularly (every day if possible).

Also remember to practise the spellings from the inside cover of your homework book. 

Don't forget you can also access and practise your maths skills on Doodle maths and you could also do some research in preparation for your talk.
