The Anglo-Saxons & Vikings
Was Britain Really in a Dark Age?
To start with, Year 5 explored what happened when the Romans left Britain and how Britain changed as a consequence. Further to this, we made progress with our understanding of chronology and how events can occur at the same time and how events can overlap. Moving on from this, we looked closely at different primary and secondary sources and explored just how barbaric the Vikings really were; comparing them to the Anglo-Saxons, too. Once we had gathered our knowledge about how life was back in the 1st century, we then began to explore whether or not Britain was really in a 'Dark Age'.
We were very fortunate to take a trip to Jorvik and further our knowledge of the Vikings and their impact in York!
