Welcome to Year 3

Our topic this half term is… 

Big and strong, powerful and brave, the Saxons wave their battle axes and brandish their swords as they begin to invade Britain’s shores.

Sail back to the Dark Ages, where battles were rife and fear reigned. Find out about the life of the Saxons, including where they lived and where they came from. Meet the blood-thirsty Vikings from Scandinavia – never before had such terror swept the land.

Make a Saxon sword or a Viking brooch and decorate it with intricate patterns.

Choose to be a Saxon or Viking and trade your crafty goods. But let’s keep it cool – we don’t want a fight breaking out!

Are you ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly Dark Ages…?

Our class novel this half term is…

The Saga of Erik the Viking

The fantastically brilliant and amazingly adventurous Saga of Erik the Viking by Terry Jones is a wonderful tale, expertly spun, which won the Children’s Book Award back in the 1980s and is fully illustrated throughout in colour by Michael Foreman.

As Erik and the crew of the Golden Dragon set sail in search of adventure and to find out where the sun goes at night, little do they know that their courage, skill, strength and stamina will all be tested to the extremes. They must win through against storms, against the dogfighters, against giants and enchantments, face up to spirits and to trolls.  Read it to find out whether they achieve their goal…
