Term 1

The Anglo-Saxons

 

  

This term we will be  learning about the Anglo-Saxons. We will be exploring where the Anglo-Saxons came from, where they settled and what their villages looked like. We will analyse the excavation of Sutton Hoo and the treasures they found and what we can learn from these artefacts. In addition to this, we will explore their ancient runes and ways of communicating. We will read and discuss the legend of King Arthur and carry out research and explore artwork to understand Britain's past.  

Sound

Our Science topic in Term 1 is 'sound'. We will work scientifically to explore and discover how sound is made and how distance affects the volume and quality of what we can hear. We will explore how we can change and vary pitch and even work out our own hearing age!
