Our topic this half term is about
ANGLO SAXONS AND VIKINGS
We will go on a fascinating journey back in time, this term, as we find out about the Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the kingdom of England and how England became a unified country. Willow Class will explore where the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings came from, how they fought for territory and power, and how their fighting ultimately led to the kingdom of England we know today. Along the way, we will also find out what life was like for everyday people living in Anglo-Saxon and Viking Britain, exploring things such as Viking runes and Anglo-Saxon stories like Beowulf.
In English, we will be learning about the features of instructions, non-chronological reports and setting and character descriptions within a narrative set, post WW2 and in Ancient Egyptian times with our class novel.
We will also be continuing to look at punctuation, word classes, sentence structures as well as continuing to learn our Y3/4 spellings and spelling patterns.
