Welcome back!
We hope that you had a really lovely Christmas break and have come back ready to learn.
Our topic this term takes us back to the Early Middle Ages to explore the Anglo-Saxon and Viking invasions and settlements.  We have started exploring straight away. This past week, our History and English lessons have been about Sutton Hoo. We transformed the classroom into the site and set off as archeologists to discover artefacts.
