Welcome to the Summer Term 2 Hermit Crabs, Pufferfish and Seahorses!
We will be learning about who the Saxons were and why they came to England. We will focus on looking at aspects of their daily life, village life, clothing, religion, the Saxon Army, famous Saxon leaders, famous Saxon stories and the archaeological finds at Sutton Hoo.
On Friday 29th June, we will be having an Anglo-Saxon day with an exciting visitor. Start thinking about your outfit!
This term we will be using our creative skills to write stories where unimaginable events take place. We have been using the book Tuesday by David Wiesner as inspiration. We will be using rich descriptions, including similes, powerful adjectives and personification, to bring the story to life.
This term we are learning all about the properties of shape.
Area: we will learn how to measure and calculate the area of shapes.
Geometry: we will be looking at identifying different shapes through their features (such as symmetry), with a focus on quadrilaterals.
Position and Movement: we will be plotting points on a grid and describing position and movement.
Times tables: We will continue our focus on times tables and related division facts this term, making sure that we are confident with ALL the times tables before Year 5.
We have spellings to learn each week. Here are the spellings for Summer 2.
There are some fun spelling games on this website:
