Our Curriculum

Our Topic
Anglo Saxons and Vikings

Our topic for the Autumn Term is all about some of the early invaders and settlers in what is now the United Kingdom.

In History, we will learn about the period after the Roman's, where these invaders came from and why they chose to settle in England.  We will examine what the country looked like between their first invasions, the resistance against the Vikings and the first king of England.  To do this, we will need to learn how historians found out about the past and compare sources of information available to us.  We will use computers to collect and present information about our country's ancestors and learn about the art and culture they introduced.

Our Science units will be animals including humans and living things and their habitats.  Within this we will discover the inner workings of our digestive systems. I wonder what the Vikings ate and whether there is a way to find out...  We will also develop a deeper understanding of food chains and how animals can be classified.

In RE, we will be learning about gods and goddesses from different religions and comparing stories that overlap between them.
