Welcome to our class, we are all proud to be members of Team Invincible.
The staff who work in our class are Senor Gamez (Teacher), Miss Leydon and Miss Walton (Teaching Assistants). As a team we learn to work collaboratively by solving problems, sharing ideas, supporting each other and having open discussions with the teaching staff. We are developing our knowledge across both Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 curricula in preparation for transition to the next stage in the pupils’ education.
We are fortunate to go on some amazing trips, especially residentials which we are looking forward to. We are also learning to interact with others in fun, educational activities with local schools.
Spring Term 2
This term's topic is 'Raiders and Invaders'. We will focus on developing our chronological knowledge of the Anglo-Saxon and Viking struggle for the Kingdom of England until the time of King Alfred. We will look into fashions and goods of the Saxons and Vikings.
In Design and Technology, we will be using our design skills to plan and build a Viking Boat. We will also explore Sutton Hoo and study Ancient Runes.
In English, we will be looking at the story of King Arthur and the Round Table. We will use this legend to inspire our own mythological writing and to develop our grammar skills.
In Science, we will be investigating, through practical experiments, how the Saxons and Vikings stored food and made butter.
In PHSE, we ill continue using Jigsaw to learn about how to keep ourselves healthy.
How can you help at home?
Supporting your son to know their Times Tables will help their mental fluency and recall. You could also support them to research key facts about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings to consolidate their learning in school.
