Topic Activities

w/c 6th July 2020

This week we are going to practise our map reading skills by answering questions based on a map of South America.

Week 14

This week, we are doing geography.  You will be making a map of a special place or special places for you in the local area, places that are meaningful to you.  We all have special, meaningful places, maybe a favourite park, Nan's house, the library or the church. Read through the sheet and have a look at the examples of meaningful maps that other children have made to give you a few ideas.

Week 13

This week you will be learning about King Offa, king of Mercia, and his famous dyke. You will be creating an information sheet for people walking the Offa's Dyke Trail so they can find out about King Offa and the history of the dyke. You may include information on who the Anglo-Saxons were.

Week 12 (w/c 15.6.20)

Here is our best history lesson yet as it is about the Anglo-Saxons in Upton!

 

 

 

Week 11 (8th June 2020)

This week, we are looking at life in an Anglo-Saxon village. Look at the power point and watch the BBC Bitesize video that we have linked below.  Then you are to design, draw and label your own Anglo-Saxon village (or you can use the pictures to cut out and design your village). Write down any facts you know about life in a village (types of jobs that needed to be done, types of crops, what houses were like etc). Make sure that your village is a busy and thriving one and include lots of labels that show you understand what life would have been like for the Anglo-Saxon villagers. 

Challenge: Would you rather have lived in a Roman town or an Anglo-Saxon village? Explain your answer.

Week 10

This week we are learning about the Anglo-Saxons and religion. Read through the Anglo-Saxon Christianity lesson sheet and then complete the question sheet. Choose between *, ** or ***. Each extra * means more challenge!

You can then complete Task 2 (drawing or colouring). You can find details on the lesson sheet.

Week 9

This week we are going to be thinking as archaeologists and historians. You will be learning about a very important discovery that was made in 1939.  You will examine objects found at this discovery to think about what they tell us about life and culture in Anglo-Saxon times.

1.  Read through the sheet 'Lesson Week 9' to learn about the discovery.

2.  Use the 'Answer Grid' sheet to think about some of the objects found. If you are not sure, have a guess!

3.  Look at the 'Answer Sheet' for information about the objects and who the person may have been.

4. Look at the Power Point and the link to the British Museum for more information and more pictures of the treasures found at Sutton Hoo.

Week 8 - to understand about how Anglo-Saxon Britain was ruled and to know about Anglo-Saxon law and order.

 

This week we will be looking at how Anglo-Saxon Britain was ruled. 

You will then find out about how Anglo-Saxons kept law and order.

 

1. Read through the information sheet.

2. Answer the questions on the information sheet.

3. Create a poster or leaflet that explains all about Anglo-Saxon law and order. Remember to include pictures.

Week 7 - To understand how the Anglo-Saxons have influenced Britain by explaining some of the place names they established and their meanings.

Week 5

 

This week we would like you to complete a KWL on our new topic the Anglo-Saxons

You can draw this into your exercise book; it does not need to be printed and stuck in. 

 

1) What do you already know about the Anglo-Saxons? 

2) What do you want to find out about the Anglo-Saxons? Write as many questions as you can think of! 

3) Leave the final column blank for now as we will fill this in when we complete the topic!

 

Challenge 

When you finish your KWL choose 2 (or more!) of your questions and research them. 

What can you find out? You can choose how to present your findings (a written paragraph, poster, presentation etc.) 

 

We can't wait to see what you find out!
