Class 4's Topic Page

Autumn Term- Topic 1

 

Our current topic is the...

Anglo-Saxons

We will begin our topic with an inspirational starter where we will become Anglo-Saxons for a day.

 

As Historians we will look at:

Britain’s settlement by Anglo-Saxons and Scots

Focusing on-

  • Roman withdrawal from Britain in c. AD 410 and the fall of the western Roman Empire
  • Scots invasions from Ireland to north Britain (now Scotland)
  •  Anglo-Saxon invasions, settlements and kingdoms: place names and village life
  • Anglo-Saxon art and culture
  • Christian conversion – Canterbury, Iona and Lindisfarne

 

 

Our current class book is...

Beowulf 

by Michael Morpurgo

English

We will be starting a new writing unit based on the book 'Leaf' by Sandra Dieckmann. We will be writing an outsider narrative and an information report.  

Maths

Our maths work this term will follow the White Rose scheme of learning, we will be looking at Number: Place Value.

To help develop children’s fluency in mathematics, we also ask each child to learn Key Instant Recall Facts each half term. We expect children to practise their KIRFs as part of their homework. Please work on the KIRFs for Spring 1.
