Hello Year 5 and 6!

  

                                                       Summer Term 2018

Anglo Saxons and Cornish Legends

The Sword in the Stone by Michael Morgpurgo

 

                                                                               King Arthur

Let me tell you about my favourite fable,

It is about knights of the round table,

Arthur was sitting on his throne,

Because he pulled the sword out of the stone,

He had a wife named Guinevere,

And lots of knights who had no fear,

They lived in a castle called Camelot,

With lots of horses that smell a lot,

And fought many battles and were very brave,

And lots of people they did save.

 

Are you ready for an Anglo Saxon learning extravaganza?

Who were the Anglo Saxons?

What were their beliefs?

What were the settlements like?

What was a Hill fort?

How did they communicate?

What was their home life like?

 

This term your learning will include;

.

  • Exploring runes
  • Exploring communication
  • Designing and making homes and a hill fort
  • Finding out about one of the earliest civilisations – Anglo Saxons

 

In other areas we will be learning about:

  • Materials and their properties,
  • Light and Sound
  • Sikhism
  • Developing our striking and fielding skills.
