Class 3

Spring 1

Raiders and Traders

Big and strong, powerful and brave, the Saxons wave their battle axes and brandish their swords as they begin to invade Britain’s shores. Sail back to the Dark Ages, where battles were rife and fear reigned. Find out about the lives of the Saxons, including how they lived and where they came from. Meet the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia – never before had such terror swept the land.

This term we will be learning all about the people who invaded our lands after the Romans left in AD 410. It wont all be battles and fighting however, as there was much much more to this period of history. Take a look at our knowledge organiser below to find out more.

In science our focus will turn to plants. We will complete some investigations to find out what plants need to be healthy and strong, discover what the different parts of a plant are for and learn why flowering plants are so important. The knowlege organsier is below.

Art this term will take its inspiration from our history topic –  The Staffordshire Hoard providing the stimulus for studying pattern, form  and shape.

Our PE this term is tag rugby so we will be outside (brrr!) so please provide suitable shoes/trainers and layers of clothing for warmth and keeping dry. A spare pair of shoes for in doors is recommended as we may get muddy but if the field is too wet we will be in the court. Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday.

Please let us know if you have any questions about Class 3.

Best wishes,

Mrs Bradding & Mrs Lander
