A HUGE well done to all of year 4 for their hard work during this first half term, we are very proud of them all! The children have loved learning about Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.
To celebrate, the children held an exhibition as a chance to reflect on their amazing topic work from this half term. We have received great feedback and the children should be very proud of themselves. Here are some photos to share from the exhibition.
We are looking forward to introducing their next topic to them after half term!
The children have been creating their own Anglo-Saxon weapons today, in preparation for their exhibition on Wednesday. They have used what they have learnt about weapons to design their own using a different materials.

Last week, year 4 had a special Anglo-Saxon visitor come to share their knowledge and artefacts with us. We took part in lots of activities such as carving our names using Runes (the Anglo-Saxon alphabet), sketching items used by the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, learning about their weapons as well as playing games!
Here are a few photos for you to take a look at.
The Viking Man visit
Welcome to Class 7!
This week in Class 7, we have been researching Saxon shore forts and discussing the reasons why they were built on the South-East coast to defend themselves from seaborne invaders. The children have so far thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Anglo-Saxons and how they protected themselves within the forts.
Next week, we will be looking into more detail at the Saxon's daily lifestyles such as; farming, homes, food, crime and punishment.
