 In the summer term, we will be exploring a number of exciting topics. In History we will looking at the Anglo-Saxons. In Geography, we will carry out field work focusing on the River Wey. In Science we will be exploring electricity and using the knowledge we gain to create a fantastic electric powered car for our DT project. PE will include practicing a number of different athletics events and getting ready for our School Sports Day.
