This term we have a History focus. We will be learning about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and what life was like in Britain in the Dark Ages. We have a 'Viking Theme Day' to look forward to as well (details will be sent out shortly). After half term we will find out what was going on in a very different part of the world during the Dark Ages when we begin to learn about the Early Islamic Civilisation and how it helped change the world.
In English our texts are The Promise by Nicola Davies and The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle.
In Science we are going to be learning about properties and changes in materials and will be doing some exciting practical lessons.
In DT we will be designing and making moving vehicles.
In Maths we are going to continuing to learn more about multiplication and division and learn some new written methods. Keep practicing on TT Rockstars as much as you can. It is so important to know your times tables and related division facts. Can you improve your speed?
And last but not least something VERY exciting...we will be having a weekly forest school morning/afternoon! This means a ranger will be coming into school to teach you lots of skills and utilise our woodland (more information will be sent out shortly). We can't wait!
We think it is going to be such an exciting term with lots to look forward to. We can't wait to continue our learning journey with you all!
