Class 4/5N

Spring Term  - 2019

 

 Welcome back after the Christmas break and we hope you are all ready for an exciting Spring term.

Imagine! The year is AD 410 and the once-mighty Roman Empire is crumbling. Sailing across the North Sea, ships land on the beaches of Britannia’s eastern shores. They carry the Saxons, pirate raiders and strong soldiers, greedy for land and ready to attack the Britons. These Germanic warriors travel the seas in small sailing boats, striking coastal settlements and working their way inland. The invaders came from the countries we now call Scandinavia and Germany. They were known as Saxons, Angles and Jutes.

Whilst studying the geography, lifestyles and turbulent events that shaped our country during the Dark Ages we will find ourselves discussing and debating the influences and challenges presented by these traders and raiders. Whether we are researching weaponry, building Anglo-Saxon settlements, creating clay utensils or using software to recreate events we will be immersing ourselves in the extraordinary achievements and culture of this period.
