LKS2 – Class 7 – History

Today, the children were historians to answer our sub-historical inquiry question of: “What was the relationship between the Vikings and the Anglo Saxons?”

The children learnt that the Anglo Saxons and Vikings became neighbours in Britain, but they did not always get along peacefully. The Vikings were focused on conquering all the English kingdoms rather than just raiding. Though, King Alfred the Great is a key individual in history who defeated the Vikings at the Battle of Edington.

Over the course of the lesson, the children learnt about the battle and gathered as much information as possible to learn about the relationship between the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings. Then, the children went outside and role-played the battle. This helped them explore the battle and the consequences of it.
