For our big question for Summer term 1, we will be finding out whether the Anglo Saxons were fierce fighters or friendly farmers. We will be looking specifically at how the Anglo Saxons settled in Britain, the story of Hengist and Horsa and also the 

important role of St Aiden and St Cuthbert. Below are the homework ideas and the What We Are Learning sheets which are stuck in the children's planners.


Some of these homework tasks can be found on the assignments tab of Microsoft Teams. Any homework completed will result in the child being given 1 team point.
