The theme of this week has been myths and legends! In English, we have been reading and learning about the Anglo-Saxon legend of Beowulf. The children have heard all about Grendel the monster and they've had chance to create their own monsters. They have practised their thesaurus skills to find some great vocabulary choices to enhance their descriptions and make them as exciting as possible.
This learning has linked in nicely with our history as we continue to discover more about the Anglo-Saxons, this week focussing on how their religion and beliefs changed over time. Next week, we'll discover how the Anglo-Saxons organised the country and created the heptarchy.
In maths, we have now finished our unit of learning all about multiplication and division. We've covered all of the times tables in our lessons now, so children are able to practise these at home until they become fluent. Next week's learning will focus on length and perimeter.
Our learning in science focused (excuse the pun) on how we see light. We learnt about all about the structure of the eye and discovered how glasses help people who are short and long sighted.
This afternoon, we continued creating optical illusions. They've turned out brilliantly! Keep your eyes peeled in school for a new display featuring our artwork...
