Spring Term 2022 - Vikings and Anglo-Saxons
This term we will be learning about the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons. The children will learn who the Vikings were as well as when and where they raided and settled. They will learn about significant events from the period and order these chronologically on a timeline. The children will find out about the Anglo-Saxon kings who ruled during the 'Viking Age' and examine their influence and significance in British history. In addition to this, they will learn about the Anglo-Saxon justice system and compare and contrast crimes, punishments and laws with their modern day equivalents. The children will also have the opportunity to learn about different aspects of everyday Viking life. They will explore the types of houses that the Vikings lived in, what clothes they wore and even what types of food they ate.
At some point each half term the children should complete at least three activities from the homework grid. Written work must be presented neatly in your homework book. Creative work can be presented in any way of your choosing.
Please find link to the homework grid below:
We will also send weekly spellings home every Friday which will be tested on the following Friday morning. Don't forget to also log on to Mathletics each week.
PE is on Monday and Tuesday afternoons. This takes place outside as often as possible so the children will benefit from having navy track suit trousers in their PE kit.
We have a timetabled library session each week where the children are encouraged to choose a book to borrow and bring home to share with you.
The children need daily practice of their times tables as they are expected to know all of their times tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4.
For the first time this year, the government have introduced a statutory times tables test for Year 4 children which will take place in the Summer term.
