River of Knowledge
Our River of Knowledge topic for the summer term is called Digging up the past and we will be studying the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings. The topic is linked closely to our class texts, 'Anglo Saxon Boy' and 'Beowulf.' We will conduct research and create detailed accounts of the past using different genres to communicate our ideas including non-chronological reports and diary entries. We will study the Saxon timeline, the kingdoms of Saxon Britain, famous Saxons, and Saxon settlements including land use and local resources.
