Hello Class 5!
This week’s homework is focused on History!
We have been learning lots about the Anglo-Saxons in class and don’t forget you can always watch our class assembly on the website to remind yourself of some important facts!
We now know that the Anglo-Saxons came to England for a number of different reasons. Some of them decided to stay and settle here. By 600, Britain had been split into small Saxon kingdoms. Saxon settlements had become small kingdoms. Each group of Anglo-Saxon settlers had a leader or war-chief. A strong leader became ‘cyning’ – Anglo-Saxon for ‘king’. Each king ruled a kingdom and led a small army.
What issues could there be with this? Write your thoughts on the blog.
Research information about the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms and how Britain was ruled. You might want to find some information about Anglo-Saxon Kings, the different laws and how different classes were treated. You can choose how to present your work or you can write your work on the blog under different subheadings.
I can’t wait to see what you find out!
From Miss Lee 🙂
