Horrible Histories: Smashing Saxons and Vicious Vikings

 

 

Welcome back to the new year! We hope you have had a fantastic break! 

 

This term we will be stepping back in time to the Dark Ages... 

 

Who were the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons? Where did they come from? Why was it such a dark period of history? How have they shaped Britain from Romans to Normans?

 

These are some of the aspects that we will be investigating this term. 

 

We will be making authentic Viking shields for DT! If your parents would like to come in and help, please let your teacher know.         

 

Homework

 

As a reminder to parents, children will be given one piece of maths and English homework each Friday. This is to be handed in by the following Friday.

 

Additionally, children are expected to read daily for 15-20 minutes and/or practice spellings. 

 

If you have any issues or concerns, please come and speak to us.

PE Kits

 

Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school each week.

 

5S have their PE sessions on a Monday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor).

5B have their PE sessions on a Tuesday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor).

 

However occasionally we may have extra PE during the week. Hence, it is best to leave their PE kits in for the whole week and only take it home over the weekend if needed.
