This term we will be learning about the Vikings!!
This unit expands pupils’ chronological knowledge of British History, focusing on the Viking struggle for the Kingdom of England. The unit explores who the Vikings were and where they came from, how Vikings travelled and how this enabled them to explore the world. Pupils will examine evidence to see just how far the Vikings travelled and traded. They will also learn about the first Viking raids on England: where they invaded, how they invaded, and why they invaded. Pupils will learn about what type of warriors the Vikings were, what they wore, how they fought, why they fought, and what they fought for.
Do you think you would liked to have lived in the Viking era?
