Summer 1 and 2

Each week, children have to complete one home learning challenge. They can choose whichever one they want to do! These can be done independently or together, with a parent or guardian.


Write a diary entry in the view point of a child in the Anglo Saxon times. Tell us what you do through the day and how you feel about it all. Try to use as many adverbials and conjunctions as you can.


Write a newspaper recount about when the Anglos, Saxons and Jukes travelled over to England.

What happened when they came?

How did England feel about it?

Write a play script about Saxons travelling over on the wooden ship, leaving their home time.
