This half term, Year 5 are learning about the Anglo-Saxons. In particular, we are focusing upon the big question : ‘Invaders or Settlers? Why did the Anglo-Saxons come to Britain?’ During our lessons, we will be researching where the Anglo-Saxons came from and the type of tribes that lived in Britain at that time. We will then be comparing and contrasting Britain as a whole, discussing what similarities and differences there are between how Britain was then and how it is now. Finally, we will be considering the push and pull factors for the Anglo-Saxons arriving in Britain, and debating whether they could be considered settlers or invaders.
