HOPPER CLASS AND THE ANGLO-SAXONS
The Romans invaded Britain in AD 43. For 400 years southern Britain was part of the Roman world. However, after the last Roman soldiers left Britain in AD 410, new people came in ships across the North Sea. Historians call them Anglo-Saxons. The Anglo-Saxons originated from different parts of Europe in around the fifth century. Initially, they consisted of three tribes: the Angles, Jutes and Saxons and inhabited Britain from early 400 AD to 1000 AD.
In Hopper Class, we have been reading all about the Anglo-Saxons, using an informative pamphlet. We are currently making plans to write our own Anglo-Saxon report. Therefore, we have been developing our understanding of them through thorough research during History, using a range of sources to better understand what life may have been like. We are even planning our assembly on what we’ve discovered! Nora said, 'I love learning about the Anglo-Saxons; it is interesting learning about the past.' Abdullah said, 'I liked learning about the laws because it made me think about how time has changed.'
