Lesson 5 history 


What were the real reasons why the Anglo Saxons invaded? 


People leave countries for different reasons. These are usually PUSH or PULL related reasons. A push might be that there are is not enough food in their own country = they move. A pull reason might be that they can farm the land in a new country = they move. Read the powerpoint with support and decide what the reasons might be for Anglo Saxons moving to Britain. 


Task: Organise the reasons cards under the headings (unlikely/likely/definitely not a reason/I don't know I need to research this) Take a photo of your reasons - these can be written onto paper - you don't need to print it off and add it to Class Dojo to share your ideas! 





Lesson 6 


How effective was Anglo Saxon punishment? 


Read Edgar's story and watch the video. Can you act out one or two Anglo Saxon punishments? Can someone guess without you telling them what the punishment was? What it was for?


Do you think Anglo Saxon punishments were fair? Why not? Write in sentences to explain why you think the punishments were fair/not fair.
