The Anglo-Saxons and Scots
This term we will be learning about the Anglo-Saxons and Scots and investigating the key events that happened during this time period. Our learning journey will delve into the invasion of Britain by the Anglo-Saxons, how each of the 7 Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms were ruled, what daily life was like for an Anglo-Saxon including their beliefs, and why Alfred the Great was so important.
Our lessons will support our understanding throughout the term, which will give us the answer to the question, "What are the Anglo-Saxons remembered for?"
Do you think you would liked to have lived in the Anglo-Saxon era?
