Sound and Hearing
Investigating how sound travels, we had great fun creating our own string telephones.

We have built on our knowledge of multiples of ten to help us to place numbers on number lines and then say which multiple they are closer to.
Anglo Saxons settled in Boston- true or false?
We were asked to work as historians to explore this question. Using maps, we recalled where the Anglo-Saxons came from and predicted places they may have settled. We were then given a hint of place names and their origins to help us.
We were astounded to think Anglo Saxons would have settled around our home town and found lots of evidence in the names of other towns and villages- it really brought out learning to life.
We can't wait to find out more!
Ordering and comparing four digit numbers, we discussed the value of each digit and sequenced the sets of numbers. After ordering, we turned the numbers over and looked at the word this set formed. This word was recorded on our sheets and enabled us to check we had sequenced correctly. All of the words were from our learning so far across the whole curriculum and gave us the opportunity to revisit key vocabulary and ideas.

Who were the Anglo Saxons?
We began our work by researching for ourselves to answer the questions, who were the Anglo Saxons, where did they come from, why did they come and noting any other key facts we thought were important.
Working as Historians, we considered some evidence to see if we could deduce some of the reasons why they were 'pushed' or 'pulled' to come to Britain.
