Welcome to the

Yellow Class Homepage...

Welcome to Year 3 and 4! This summer term we will be focusing on the topic of the Anglo-Saxons! Where did they come from? How did they get here? Who were they? Did they ever leave? How did the Picts and Vikings influence their culture? Did they defeat the Vikings? We will be also reading ‘Beowulf’ and ‘Freedom for Bron’, where we will meet two Anglo Saxon heroes as well as creating our own Anglo Saxon armour and jewellery. We also have a trip to the Museum of Birmingham to further explore The Staffordshire Hoard- a collection of Anglo Saxon treasure! As you can see our main focus this term will be History based!
