Autumn 1 Topic - Anglo Saxons and the Scots

The children in Robins class will find out what happened in Britain after the Romans left in the 5th century with these fantastic 'Anglo-Saxons, Picts and Scots' lesson.

Using the mysterious burial ship at Sutton Hoo as a basis, we will explore where the Anglo-Saxons came from, how they came to settle in Britain, who the Picts and Scots of the north were and how Christianity became the predominant religion. The children will also have the opportunity to learn about what life was like for the Anglo Saxons and the Scots by looking at real life sources and artefacts.


In science, the children in years 3&4 have been learning about the digestive system. We did a practical experiment using tights, plastic bags, orange juice, water and biscuits to show how the digestive system works. 


We have also had our 'Wow' start this week to kick start our Anglo-Saxons topic. The children came dressed as Anglo-Saxons and they made brooches and honey and oat bakes, using an authentic Anglo-Saxon recipe. The children learnt more about the clothing Anglo-Saxons would have worn and the types of food they would have eaten.
