Year 5 Curriculum

Anglo Saxons, Scots and Vikings

Our first exciting topic of the year is all about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings! Tribes called the Angles, Saxons and Jutes travelled across the North Sea to settle in Britain in the early 5th century – these settlers became known as Anglo-Saxons. For our Super Start, we will be making sturdy boats to sail the fearsome waves of the North Sea. Our Marvellous Middle will involve designing and making amulets (just like the Anglo-Saxons did) that represent an Anglo-Saxon God or Goddess. We will bring the topic to a close with our Fabulous Finish – a House-of-Commons-style debate: Would you rather be an Anglo-Saxon or a Viking?
