Topic aims for this week:
LI: to understand who the Saxons, Angles and Jutes were and where they came from
Watch video: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zc3b4wx
Go through Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms PowerPoint.
Open 7 Kingdoms Worksheet. Use an atlas or Google Maps (https://email@example.com,-5.1149726,5.5z?hl=en) to help you achieve steps 1-3 on the worksheet (don’t cheat using the last slide of the PowerPoint!). If you use Google Maps, you need to zoom in to the UK for step 1 and zoom out a little (so you can also see Denmark, Germany and Netherlands) for step 3. Once you think you know what to colour in for step 3, check the 7 Kingdoms WAGOLL first to make sure you’re right (that one’s a bit tricky).
Using the Fact Sheet to help you, write a paragraph (or two) about who the Anglo-Saxons were, where they came from and why they came.

LI: to understand how the Anglo-Saxons have influenced Britain by explaining some of the place names they established and their meanings

Go through Place Names PowerPoint.
Using a map of Britain with modern day place names (if you have one at home) or Google Maps (https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-1.7183161,6z – you’ll have to zoom in and out to see the place names), have a go at Place Names Worksheet, using the Vocab List to help you.
