a Pathway to Success

Summer Term


Following on from their topic on The Romans in Year 3, the children will continue to learn that people from other societies have been invading and settling in Britain for a long time.  Links will be made to how Saxons and Scots contributed to the formation and development of the ways of life in the UK.  The children will understand where Anglo-Saxons and Scots originated from as well as how, when and why they invaded Britain.

The main focus of the topic is on the Vikings, finding out who they were and, building on their geographical knowledge of Europe, where they came from.  They will explore how and why they invaded Britain as well as understanding what happened during their invasions and what Viking warriors were like.

The children will learn how the Vikings lived and worked, making comparisons with modern-day life.
