Important things to note:

English

We have begun to look at persuasive texts in our English lessons with Mrs Pickering and are leading up to writing a persuasive text about an issue in our world. This links closely to our recent Collective Worships which have focused on 'Our Wonderful World' and the many aspects we have to be thankful for.

These websites will be used in the next few weeks to research one of these issues. Which one do you feel passionate about and would like to write about?

Visit to West Stow Anglo-Saxon village, Suffolk

The class had the chance to travel back in time and learn about how the work of experimental archaeologists has allowed historians to understand the lives of our ancestors in the Anglo-Saxon period. This was a fabulous chance to take history outside the classroom and the children demonstrated an excellent historical knowledge.

Why not ask your child to explain what the doughnut like objects in the last picture are, and how finding them in a 'sandwich' of burnt wood showed that buildings must have had wooden floors.
