Help your child prepare for their project

1066 was a year of great change for Britain. Why not visit a castle or fort together to find out who lived there and when it was built? You could also make a life-sized soldier! Take it in turns to draw around each other’s bodies on large pieces of paper and use images of Norman or Anglo-Saxon soldiers to inspire your design. Alternatively, you could work together to write a diary entry as a king who is about to go into battle. How would you feel?

IMPORTANT INFO

Multiplication Test
You should have recieved before the holidays a letter about the new standardized test starting this year for year 4. This is to ensure that all children are moving up with a secure knowledge of their multiplications up to 12 x 12. 

As a school we have introduced TT Rockstars which allows your child to practice their multiplication skills at home and compete against their classmates. They should be recieving their logins as of next week so stay tuned!

Topic

1066

It’s probably the most famous date in English history... we’re travelling back to 1066!

King Edward is dying, so we’ll write job applications for the role of King. We’ll research the events of 1066 using books and online information. What was the Battle of Hastings, and how did it change our country? We’ll discover what life was like for Norman people and dress up as Normans for the day. We’ll be history detectives, looking closely at the Bayeux Tapestry and sketching parts of it. We’ll use different source materials to research Norman castles and online maps to locate them. In English, we’ll write emotive poems about war and get into character to write diary entries. We’ll make a Domesday Book all about our class. At the end of the ILP, we’ll think about what the Normans did for us and share our learning with you. We’ll finish by embroidering a panel about ourselves.
