Term 3- Here Come the Vikings

This term we will learn about Anglo-Saxon Britain and the struggle for control of the Kingdom. We will look at life in Anglo-Saxon Britain and what it would have been like before looking at the impact of the Viking invasion. We will then learn about what made the Vikings such incredible warriors and the changes that their arrival in Britain made to the existing territories. We will finish our topic by learning about the unification of the Anglo-Saxon and Viking forces and the battles of Stamford Bridge and Hastings and the subsequent Norman invasion.

Term Three Timetable *subject to change*

Term 2- We'll Meet Again



This term, we aim to take UKS2 children back to 1939; looking at the outbreak of WW2 and journey with them though to 1945 considering what life was like for British people during this time. We have an incredible visit lined up from our friends at Doing Their Bit – they will visit us towards the end of term.

Term One - Amazing Africa

This term our topic is Amazing Africa.

We will spend the term touring Africa and will brush up on our compass skills to describe the positions of the 54 countries which form this incredible continent. As we research countries from northern, eastern, western, southern, and central Africa we will consider how their geographic features affect life there, how the proximity of some countries to the equator affects temperatures there, at key features such as rivers and mountains and at what everyday life looks like for the people who call them home.
