This term’s topic is Anglo-Saxon Britain, where we will be looking at period just after the Romans left our shores right up to the Battle of Hastings in 1066. It will include a look at Viking invaders and those pesky Scots! We will be looking at life in those times, including how Christianity spread through Britain during this time.
Our science topic this term is ‘How our Bodies Change’. We will be looking at the human life cycle and the gestation period of different animals. We will be focusing on how our bodies change over a lifetime and answering questions like:’ Why are a baby’s legs so short?’ and ‘Why does your hair go grey when you get older?’ This topic will also cover the bodily changes during puberty – there will be an afternoon dedicated to this topic and I know the children already have loads of questions ready! A separate letter will come out shortly to give you more information about what will happen on the day and more precisely what will be discussed.
