Our wider curriculum unit this half term is, 'Smashing Saxons.'
Through this unit the children will learn about the Anglo-Saxons' invasion and settlement which ended the Roman empire. Children will learn about events through looking at artefacts, reliable sources, Anglo-Saxon Chronicles and the Beowulf poem and discuss the reliability of different sources.
Children will investigate where Anglo Saxons came from and why, making links to modern day migration and why people are sometimes forced to leave their homes.
Children will also research the Staffordshire Hoard; thinking about what this tells archaeologists about the Saxon way of life.
Our key texts this half term are:
'Beowulf' by Michael Morpurgo
'How to train your dragon' by Cressida Cowell
This half term children will be learning about area and multiplication and division.
