How do we understand the past?


Our Discover project this term will cover the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings, from when the Anglo-Saxons arrived in Britain, through the struggles with the Vikings for control of Britain, culminating in the Norman victory at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The children will develop their analytical skills through looking at sources and inferring what artefacts and other historical evidence can tell us about earlier civilisations. We will compare and contrast life as an Anglo-Saxon to life as a Viking, and create a piece of work at the end of the unit to demonstrate their learning.
