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.
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.
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.
What equivalent fractions can you see here?
Our measure work will involve working with length, mass and capacity (including converting between different units of measure).
