Autumn 1

Our enquiry question this half term is:


What impact did Anglo Saxon settlement have on Britain?


This is a History based topic in which we will be exploring the origins of the Anglo Saxons and the reasons why they chose to settle in Britain. We will also be focusing on their homes and villages and how they changed Britain.

In Science, our topic will be 'Earth and Space', in which we will be exploring the position, size and orbits of the Earth, Sun and Moon before studying the wider Solar System.



Our English text is 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' by Joe Todd-Stanton

-Reading at home should be done as frequently as possible. Children should bring their reading book and reading record to school every day and take them home each night. 



Mathletics is updated regularly with tasks. Children know their login username and passwords but can check with me. They should login and complete their assigned tasks before progressing on to Live Mathletics...let's see how many points we can get!

Timestables Rockstars is a great way to practice multiplication facts in preparation for our weekly timestables tests. Children all have an individual login. Keep an eye out for battles and challenges.



Seesaw is our new virtual classroom, we will be using it in school and at home. Teachers are able to set work, mark, leave comments and make announcments about school on here. All parents need to give permission for children to use the app.

We will be using this app to set English based homework every week and Maths homework on alternative weeks with Mathletics. Please check the newsletter under the 'letters' tab for homework dates.
