Autumn Term Theme

Our theme for the Autumn Term is:

'Trusty Traders and Rogue Raiders'

This term's learning will be based around the Saxon and Vikings!  The Anglo-Saxons and Vikings were previously taught separately at Tanworth but they will now be combined. As the history of the Anglo-Saxons was so intertwined with the Vikings for centuries, I think there is a good case to be made for creating a combined unit, hence the reason for placing the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings together in this category.
