Spring Term 2 - Who were the Anglo-Saxons?

Summer Term 1 – Will the UK ever disappear into the sea? 

Summer Term 2 - Why should Britain be ashamed of slavery? 


We will have our swimming lessons on a Friday.  It is essential that children remember to bring their swimming kit in on a weekly basis. 


Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned to school by the following Tuesday. Homework will include: English, Maths, Spellings, Reading and Times Tables Rock Stars.
