Anglo Saxons

This term our topic is Anglo Saxons, throughout this topic we are going to learn:


Children will continue to focus on multiplication and division. We will be learning how to use the grid method in order to multiply. We will also be learning about measurements and fractions.


Children will be learning about persuasive writing and will be working towards writing their own persuasive text. Children will learn about the structure and language features of persuasive texts. Our persuasive texts will link to our topic of the Anglo Saxons.


This term children will be learning about the Anglo-Saxons. In History we will learn about who the Anglo Saxons were, where they come from and what life was life for them.

In Geography children will learn to locate the 7 kingdoms on an Atlas and recognise that many of the names of towns and villages came from the Anglo Saxons.


In Science children will be using a range of materials to make their own Anglo Saxon inspired boat. We will be thinking scientifically and testing to see which materials will allow our boats to float.
