English, History and Art

Throughout Autumn term, English, history and art will be linked to the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. Our English work will be based on 'How to Train your Dragon'. The children will be writing their own story openers and a non-chronological report on Dragons. In History, we will be exploring when and why the 'Invaders' came to Britain and  how they shaped Britain into how it is today. We will even be having a visit from a real Viking! Art for this term will be collage. The children will use collage techniques to create Anglo-Saxon crosses out of cardboard.


50 motivating quotes about books and reading
Please read with your child daily (even if it is just for 5 minutes) and fill in their reading record. This will drastically boost their confidence and have a positive affect on their attainment as well as enabling them to 'magpie' what they have read to use in their own writing. 
Each time your child reads at least 4 times during the week, they will have dip in the treat box and receive a Raffle Ticket which gives them a chance to win one of the amazing reading prizes on offer at the end of the term.


Science and DT

This term's science topics are Electricity and Sound. As part of our DT project, the children will be making a torch and their own sling shot car.
