Our main topic for the next term is ‘Invaders & Settlers’. The children came back from the Easter Holiday bursting with facts and information on Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. It was wonderful to see the amount of effort and work that went into the children’s homework over the holidays.
Over the next term, they will learn even more Invaders & Settlers; learning about their journeys, culture, beliefs and everyday life. To support their learning topic we will be reading Viking Boy by Tony Brandman as our class reader. In addition, we will are also hoping to visit Battle Abbey, in July, to find out more about the end of the Viking era. More information on this will follow.
They will also have PE on a Tuesday afternoon, with this term’s focus being Tennis. On a Wednesday, they will have Football with Miss Glassock. It is essential that pupils have the correct kit with them so that they can gain the most out of the sessions planned for them. Whenever possible the children will have PE outside. During the cold weather, please ensure your child brings trousers for PE and a warm layer available as part of their kit for both the top and bottom to cover their t-shirt.
