Welcome back to the Autumn Term! 

 

We have a fun packed term ahead of us! We will be learning about the Saxons and Vikings and visiting Hereford Cathedral to find where the remains of the nine year old Saxon child were found. We will also be learning about St Ethelbert and how he had his head chopped off! In science, we will be learning all about the types of teeth, their function, tooth decay and keeping them clean and where our food goes. We will be making a model of the digestive system in a shoebox! In RE we will be learning about our family tree and God's family.
