 Term 2

Under Attack: Invaders, Traders and Settlers

 

This term will be will be learning about the lives of Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. We will find out where they invaded and where they settled in Britain. We will explore artefacts and create art work based around the time period.

 

STUNNING START

We will hold our very own 'Viking Day'  where we will step back in time for the day! We will be creating Viking longboats and preparing and eating Viking food!

FABULOUS FINISH

Towards the end of the term, we will receive a visit from a real-life Viking! We will be able to ask them questions about the way in which they live.

 

Electricity 

Our Science topic in Term 2 is 'ELECTRICITY.' We will explore common appliances that use mains and battery operated electricity, construct simple circuits using real life apparatus (cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers) and recognise common conductors and insulators of electricity.
