Current Topic (Summer 1)

Traders and Raiders

Who’s that waving axes and brandishing swords? It’s the Saxons invading Britain’s shores! During this half term, we’ll start by making sturdy boats to sail the ocean’s fearsome waves. We’ll write reports as an onlooker who witnessed the Saxons’ landing, and we’ll find out about key dates. We’ll make models of Saxon weaponry, homes and jewellery and carefully carve runes using clay tools. When we learn about the Legend of King Arthur, we’ll retell the story, and write character portraits about Alfred the Great. We’ll draw family trees showing the royal connection amongst the great Saxon and Viking ancestors of Britain, and learn about the everyday lives of them. Using maps, we’ll identify the places where the invaders came from and locate Viking invasion sites. We’ll research Viking beliefs.

Road Trip USA

Buckle up and put your sunglasses on – this half term we’re going on a road trip across the USA! We’ll start by ‘visiting’ the states where Native American tribes settled. We’ll use travel brochures and the internet to research New York and write postcards to family members. Using maps, we’ll locate the USA and find the names of the states. We’ll look at the amazing lights of Times Square, make circuits and create a program for a tourist trip around New York. The story, The Indian in the Cupboard, will inspire us to write diaries. We’ll explore Native American myths and write our own. After learning about their cultural significance, we’ll weave beautiful dream catchers. Looking at aerial views of natural landmarks, we’ll think about how they might have been formed. We’ll create travel brochures and make illuminated models of different landmarks. Then we’ll cook delicious dishes – would anyone like a burger?
