During this unit of work, we will have the opportunity to make historical connections to our previous learning on the prehistoric period. We will develop our understanding behind why people invaded and settled in Britain and evaluate how easy this was for Anglo-Saxons to do. We will also learn about Anglo-Saxon beliefs and the spread of Christianity. 



In PE, our focusses are football and dance. In football, we will be developing our passing, dribbling, attacking and defending skills.
