Term 4

The Anglo-Saxons Printables for Primary School - SparkleBox
 
TERM FOUR - ANGLO-SAXONS 
 
I hope you have all had a restful half term after our manic but fantastic Term 3. The children worked so hard and produced some fantastic pieces of home learning, a huge well done to them all. 
 
This term we are travelling back to the 5th century to learn all things Anglo-Saxons. We are going to have so much fun! 
 
KIRF - I know the multiplication and division facts for the 8 times table.
Our Learning
 
Our topic this term is the Anglo-Saxons. We have already got stuck into this topic by completing our first online lesson about where they came from. When we are back at school, we will continue our learning on the Anglo-Saxons by looking at what life was like in a typical Anglo-Saxon village, what Britain was like under Anglo-Saxon rule. We will even be creating our own Anglo-Saxon meal.  
 

The theme of the Anglo-Saxons will continue through Literacy, where we will look at writing formal, informal and persuasive letters. 

In Maths, we will start the term by covering statistics, followed by money. 

In Design and Technology, we will be looking at healthy eating. Alongside our Anglo-Saxon meal, we will also be looking to create our own healthy spaghetti bolognese. We can't wait! 

Our topic for Science this term is ‘We are Scientists!’. We will be looking at what it means to have a fair test by completing lots of fun and exciting experiments. 

In R.E. we will be looking at Salvation, asking the question 'What is Salvation and why is it important to Christians?’.
