This term, our theme for learning is ‘Invaders and Traders’ and we will be exploring the invasion of Anglo-Saxons and Vikings to Britain after 410 AD. We will be asking ourselves, ‘How have the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings impacted upon modern life?’

Please have a look out our curriculum overview for further information on our learning this term:

Our school values are Respect, Resilience & Responsibility.

Our British Values Focus this Term

In our assemblies this term our British values will link to our school values of Respect, Resilience & Responsibility.

In class, our focus will be on the British values Individual Liberty and Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith. We will explore these values through our writing unit based on Malala, in our R.E. lessons where we explore different denominations of the Christian faith and through our Topic lessons.


One of the seven outcomes we would like from our curriculum is for the children to develop their understanding of what it means to live in a diverse society such as Britain. To support that this term, we will be studying the activist Malala Yousafzai and will gain an understanding of different faiths in our society.
