This term, we’ll be learning all about the Anglo Saxons and Vikings!
The Anglo Saxon era was a fascinating time when the United Kingdom we live in today was beginning to take shape. We’ll be learning all about the post-Roman migration of the Anglo-Saxons, the reasons they came and the impact they had on Britons who lived here at the time. We’ll delve into the life of a typical Anglo Saxon, learn about the kingdoms they created, Anglo Saxon kings such as Alfred the Great and the traces of Anglo Saxon Britain that are still here today. A couple of hundred years after the Anglo Saxons migrated here, the Vikings arrived and we’ll be looking at their impact too!
Each week, your homework will include curriculum work linked to this topic and this week, I’d like you to come up with three interesting facts you know about the Anglo Saxons and Vikings as well as three questions you have about the Anglo Saxons and Vikings. Write your 3 facts and 3 questions into the comments below and we can share our knowledge and questions in class – perhaps we can answer each other’s questions here in this blog!
I look forward to finding out what you come up with!
