Our topic for Autumn term: Anglo-Saxon Britain

Across the foundation subjects, we will work towards being able to answer key questions. Where appropriate, these questions will link to our learning umbrella of 'Anglo-Saxon Britain'. Our key questions this half-term are: 

History and Art

Did the Anglo-Saxons have any impact on modern Britain?

Science and Music

What kind of music did the Anglo-Saxons listen to?

How can you tell the type of day without a clock?


Where would you build a new town?


How healthy was an Anglo-Saxon diet?

How did the Anglo-Saxons build their homes?


What do different people believe about God?


Who checks that the information on the internet is correct?

How effective is it to work on 'Word'?


Our book for this half term is King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table by Roger Lancelyn Green. This is perhaps one of our most famous legends and hopefully a book the whole class will enjoy!
