Autumn 2017

Our topic this term is the Anglo-Saxons and we have been learning about when and where they came from and why they came to England. We have been talking about settlements and what the Anglo-Saxons needed and how they were different from the Romans. We are researching the reconstructed Anglo-Saxon village of West Stow and are very much looking forward to our visit there on 2nd November.

In English we have been carrying on the Anglo Saxon theme and looking at the story of Beowulf and Grendel. We have been looking at powerful verbs and reported speech and have been writing newspaper reports.

In Maths we have been revisiting our place value knowledge and some of our work has included exploring the function of zero, rounding numbers to the nearest 10,100 and 1000  and negative numbers. We are now moving on to addition and subtraction using the column method.

We have enjoyed watching, listening to and even eating some presentations about Anglo Saxon food and look forward to sharing more of them as they come in. Don’t forget you have until 31st October to complete it!
