Anglo-Saxon and Viking Planning

Anglo-Saxon and Viking Planning (Intended For Y5)

Please note that this planning is intended for my OWN school but can be used as a basis for your own planning, free of charge.

This planning combines the topics set out on the National Curriculum of the Anglo-Saxon settlement and conflict with the Vikings into an entire term's worth of work. It starts by looking at Britain after the Romans and the settlement of the Anglo-Saxons, fighting against the Scots and the Picts. It looks at the chronology of the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings before examining both sets of people in subsequent lessons to see what they were like as societies and their impact on Britain. It also includes lessons which look at the conflict between the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, focusing on cause and effect. Additionally, this comes with an Enquiry Framework document showing how each lesson fits together to answer the main statement about the topic, helping to keep it coherent and purposeful. There is also a rationale for the enquiry and alternative questions/statements that could be used or tweaked.
