Our topic this term is Our Island History. Children will explore the chronology of the invaders and settlers that have shaped Britain. They will develop their understanding of the Roman invasion to include settlement by Anglo-Saxons, Scots and Vikings, investigating the resistance by Alfred the Great and Athelstan, first king of England. Year 6 have already begun creating Viking helmets!
Children will then begin to look at more recent waves of immigration to Britain, including migration from the Caribbean in the 1950s and 60s. Finally, children gain an understanding of the issues surrounding immigration today.
