Ever wondered where the Anglo Saxons came from? Or why the rain forests are so important to us?
Well look no further. These are just two of the exciting areas of learning we will be looking at this term. To help bring our topic of the Anglo Saxons really come to life we have a special visitor from the past. They will be visiting our school on Monday 11th of September - so get your questions ready and prepare to be amazed. We then move swiftly on to the topic of The Rainforest. We hope to visit Tropical World and will let you know the date as soon as this is confirmed. On top of the exciting topics we have, we will be working hard towards our school motto, Impossible is Nothing, through lessons on Positive Mindset and how to be resilient and focused in lessons, even when things get a little tricky and we end up 'in the pit'.
