Autumn Term - Invasion

How did Britain change after the Romans withdrew in AD 410?

This project teaches children about life in Britain after the Roman withdrawal.  Children will learn about Anglo-Saxon and Vikings up to the Norman conquest.


This term we will also be completing subject specific projects on the digestive system, sound, food, art and geography.  

Today we were visited by Thorgunna Eriksdottir, a real Viking! She talked to us about the Vikings, their everyday life and battle techniques. We made a shield wall, dissected Viking poo to see what the Vikings ate, tried out Viking and Anglo Saxon helmets, swords and axes and acted out a story about Thor and Loki! We’ve learned so much about the Vikings and had lots of fun at the same time!
