Traders and Raiders
Summer 2018 Term
Big and strong, powerful and brave, the Saxons wave their battle axes and brandish their swords as they begin to invade Britain’s shores.
Sail back to the Dark Ages, where battles were rife and fear reigned. Find out about the life of Saxons, including how they lived and where they came from. Meet the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia – never before had such terror swept the land.
In this project there will be a history focus on Anglo Saxons and Vikings, a geography focus on using maps, settlements and learning more about Europe. There will be an Art and Design focus while children learn about Viking Gods, researching images and drawing pictures of them. There will also be a Design Technology focus while children make a Viking long boat.
This project will culminate in an outdoor tournament of physical challenges and competitive games – dressed up as Vikings, of course!
