Topic

 

 

Our first topic this year is Vicious Vikings! Over the course of the term, we will discover what it took to become a fierce and successful Viking warrior. We will explore how artefacts can help us to learn more about life in the past and we will compare our own lives to those of the Vikings and Anglo Saxons. We will also spend some time learning about significant people from Viking and Anglo Saxon times such as King Alfred the Great.
