Invaders and Settlers

In this half term, we will be continuing our Invaders and Settlers topic. However, we will be focusing on the Vikings and the Anglo-Saxons. We will look at who they are and their impact on Britain. We will also try to compare the two against each other. During Geography lessons, we are going to be looking into volcanoes to link in with our learning about Pompeii.
