Lesson 1 History 

Anglo Saxons 


This week, our focus will be on history and as such, there will be no English or Maths today or tomorrow so that children can get the most out of this topic before we move on  to Vikings, which is our next topic in history. 


Watch the videos about the  Anglo Saxons to begin to understand who they were, where they came from and their story telling traditions.  Then start the topic by sorting some of the tools by reading about the mystery flints (used in tool making) and deciding which sorting sheet it goes with.
