Autumn 2 - The Anglo-Saxons

Our topic for this half term is The Anglo-Saxons. We will be learning about who the Anglo-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. After researching Anglo-Saxon villages, we will have the opportunity to design our own village and in DT we will be designing and making our own Anglo-Saxon brooches.

Our class assemblies will be taking place shortly after Christmas (dates listed below).

  Key dates:

4V Class Assembly - 10th January 2020

4T Class Assembly - 17th January 2020

4P Class Assembly - 24th January 2020

 

Reading

Encouraging a love of reading is the single most important contribution you can make to your child's educational development at this stage.  We ask that you and your child read four times each week and note this in their Reading Record.  These will be checked weekly by the class teacher and should be brought to school each day.  We love to hear what books you are reading but you can also tell us about comics, websites and anything else that has caught your eye! 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch by email via the school office or face to face when collecting your child.
