Spring Term 

This term as part of our year long 'Identity' theme we are finding out about the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons. We are beginning to use our skills of enquiry, interpretation, chronology and investigation to learn about what happened in Britain between 700AD and 1066AD. We will shortly be visiting Weaverhall Museum to find out more about the everyday life of the Vikings. The children will become archaeologists and excavate an Anglo-Saxon grave. They will also do some clay work and create a Viking chess piece.

           

In Geography, we will be comparing and contrasting Great Britain with North America. This will involve us investigating the natural and physical features that make up North America.

Autumn Term 

This term our topic is Locality and we will be exploring numerous historical and geographical questions about ourselves and the area that we live in - Who am I? Where have we come from? What put Northwich on the map? We will also be visiting the Lion Salt Works to enrich our learning as part of our local history study.
