Dear Parents,
The pupils in Years 3 and 4 have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons this term and will be studying the Vikings after half term. To enhance the learning of these topics, we would like to invite the children to undertake a personal project to bring in during the week beginning 3rd July. This could take the form of, for example; a 3D model with notes on a Saxon house or Viking long ship, a folder with drawings/text/research on a particular interest close to their heart, an A3 display chart about how Britain changed under the Saxons and Vikings or even a short film about life in these times.  We look forward to seeing their finished pieces.
