The topic for this term is Anglo-Saxons and we will also be exploring the book Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo in English.
Children are also given Maths and English homework on a Friday, which is to be completed and returned by Wednesday the following week. Pupils are also expected to read at least three times a week, preferably to an adult, and note it down in their reading record. Spellings are given each week and children are expected to practise and learn them. Click to see yr5 spellings. Click to see yr6 spellings.
