Understand that many different people have settled in Britain and have helped shape the nation.

To understand that Britain has been invaded and settled numerous times, including by the Anglo Saxons

**Follow the Key Stage 3 History links and click on “How dark were the Dark Ages?” and then Lesson 2 and Lesson 3 on the Anglo Saxons.**

Unfortunately, the Anglo Saxon lessons on Oak Academy are for KS3 children and they go into much greater detail than we need in Year 4. However, Lesson 2 and Lesson 3 by Mr Cooper do focus on what we are learning this term.

Lesson 2 – The Arrival of the Anglo Saxons.

Lesson 3 – Anglo-Saxon Society.

If you would like to listen to his lessons then I suggest that you watch them with an adult so you can discuss parts (and whizz forward through the bits that go into too much detail!). He does show some good pictures that are interesting too.
