Term 2

Traders and Raiders


Our topic this term is Traders and Raiders! 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 the Saxons, including how they lived and where they came from. Meet the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia – never before had such terror swept the land.
Choose to be a Saxon or Viking and trade your crafty goods. But let’s keep it cool – we don’t want a fight breaking out!
Are you ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly Dark Ages?

Next term, we are learning about the oceans including what creatures live in them, where they are and the formation of oceans. Research this type of habitat to help your understanding. You could visit the library, ask an adult, and watch documentaries or programmes such as Blue Planet to help you.
