It’s probably the most famous date in English history... we’re travelling back to 1066! King Edward is dying, so we’ll write job applications for the role of King. We’ll research the events of 1066 using books and online information. What was the Battle of Hastings, and how did it change our country? We’ll discover what life was like for Norman people and dress up as Normans for the day. We’ll be history detectives, looking closely at the Bayeux Tapestry and sketching parts of it. We’ll use different source materials to research Norman castles and online maps to locate them. In English, we’ll write emotive poems about war and get into character to write diary entries. We’ll make a Domesday Book all about our class.
Our knowledge organisers show the children the content, facts and vocabulary within their topic and are used throughout to guide learning.
