Our first topic back after Christmas was all about the Anglo Saxons.
The children do a Cold Task - this is where they write down what they already know about the Anglo Saxons and what they want to find out about the Anglo Saxons.
We really enjoyed writing a newspaper article about the Anglo Saxon invasion.
In maths some of us use cubes to help us convert improper fractions into mixed fractions.
