Where Everyone Belongs


Welcome to Spring Term 1 2022


Our Project for this term is called 'Saxon Stories' and the main subject that we will be focussing on in our curriculum time is History.  We call this our DRIVER SUBJECT. In history, we will be finding out about the events that led up to the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons in our country. We will also be learning about how the Anglo-Saxon people lived and considering the evidence, in our country today, that proves this.
