Our Curriculum for the Spring Term:

Topic & Science

Our Topic this term is 'Settlers and Invaders'.

In Science, we will be exploring Sound. The children will learn about how sounds are made through vibrations and how sound travels to the human ear. They will also explore the pitch and volume of a sound in relation to the object that produces it and how distance has an effect on sound.

In History, the children will be learning about the Vikings and the Anglo-Saxons. The children will learn about why the Vikings invaded and settled in Anglo-Saxon Britain and about daily life during this time-period, including their food and alphabet.

English

In writing this term, the children will be learning about Newspapers, Recounts in Role and Poetry.  The children will learn about how to identity and use the features of a newspaper report.  They will then write their own article about a real event (the Viking attack at Lindisfarne).  

We will link Recounts in Role to the Vikings and the Anglo Saxons. The children will learn about writing in the first person and how to write effectively for different audiences while taking on the role of another person.

In Poetry, the children will learn how to identify and use different features of Poetry. We will look at a range of poetry for different audiences.
