We have just completed our Anglo-Saxon topic. Throughout this topic, children explored Anglo-Saxon settlements, culture and governance. We began the topic by looking back at the periods of British history that we have already studied and answering our enquiry question, ‘How did Saxon England begin?’ We have had great fun during this topic and successfully identified similarities and differences between the Roman and Saxon periods. As a class we are divided – 16 out of 27 of us would rather have lived as part of Roman Britain than Saxon Britain.
