Who were they?
Where did they come from?
Why did they want to invade Britain?
What impact did they have on our lives today?

As a reminder to parents, children will be given maths and English homework each Friday. This is to be handed in by the following Friday. However, the reading homework will need to be completed for Monday in preparation for our reading lesson.
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.
Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school each week.
5S have their PE sessions on Wednesdays.
5B have their PE sessions on Thursdays.
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.
