Our first topic this year is Invasion! For our history focus this term, we will be exploring the effects of the Roman withdrawal and the chronology and geography of subsequent invasions. We will be studying the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings in detail, examining their reasons for invading, their settlements and everyday life.
As historians we will be considering how we know about life in this period and will be investigating the Sutton Hoo ship burial. We will learn about Athelstan, an Anglo-Saxon king, and what happened after his death, before ending the term by learning about the Norman invasion of 1066.
