Summer Term

Our history topic this term is Invaders. It will focus on the Anglo-Saxon and Viking invasions of Britain. We will learn about where the invaders came from and why they came. Also, we will find out about Sutton Hoo and the mystery about who was buried there. 





Our  science topic on light will consider light sources, directional arrows, investigating shadows and observing angles of incidence – so lots of practical work. Our second topic ‘Classification’ will look at the ways that all living things can be classified, as well as more detailed studies of specific groups, such as micro-organisms. The poetry book ‘Lost Words’ will be an inspiring link to nature.





Our class novel this term is Malamander by Thomas Taylor: ” Nobody visits Eerie-on-Sea in the winter. Especially not when darkness falls and the wind howls around Maw Rocks and the wreck of the battleship Leviathan, where even now some swear they have seen the unctuous Malamander creep…”
