During this topic we will be finding out if the Saxons were really savage or not. 

We will be learning about where the Saxons came from, why they invaded Britain, what life was like during Anglo Saxon times and what ended the Saxon period in history.   

English

In English we will be using the story of Beowulf to write newspaper reports.

Later, we will be writing to stories and poems linked to our Saxon topic.

 

 

 

Maths

We will begin this term with fractions.  We will be finding equivalent fractions and investigating tenths and hundredths and how these fractions link to decimals. 

Then we'll be looking at the four operations.  Building on our work from last term, we will be developing our methods further and solve problems involving units of measure.

DRAGON ATTACK!

Last weekend, a dragon attacked the school building. The vicious creature took an egg that Squirrel's class had been sent in the post. Here is the attack!

This year we look forward to seeing growth mindsets in action. At times our learning may be tricky but by being positive and working hard, we will all be successful. We look forward to celebrating all your successes with you.
