Welcome to Summer 1!


Our book focus for this half term is 'I was there 1066: The Norman Conquest' by Jim Eldridge



This term our topic is 'The Normans'.  This topic will allow the children to expand their knowledge of life during the Norman Invasion.  We will be looking at the main contenders for the throne, the key events of 1066, and how the Normans kept control of England following their victory at the Battle of Hastings.  We will be writing a historical narrative from the perspective of an individual living during the Norman Invasion, will be designing and making Norman Shields, and creating our own scene in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry.


In our Jigsaw PSHE sessions this half-term, we will be looking at 'Relationships'.


Our school value for this half term is 'Truthfulness'. We will learn about the importance of truthfulness: choosing the truth; standing for the truth; and seeing the truth
