At St. Mary's we place the children at the heart of everything we do

Autumn Term

We begin the year with our Invaders topic. During this topic we learn about the Romans, their way of life, and we study their invasion of Britain. We then move on to learning about the Anglo-Saxons and write quest stories based on Anglo Saxon kings and the legend of King Arthur. Finally, we discover that the Vikings invaded and were not very friendly!
We have a Romans Day, when we all dress up as Ancient Romans, learn how to march like Roman soldiers and share a Roman-style banquet!
We also have a fantastic trip to Tintagel, where we learn about the variety of people who have settled there, and explore the legend of King Arthur in more detail. This trip acts as a spectacular stimulus for our quest stories!
