As part of their history topic, the Anglo-Saxons, Year 4 returned from their lunch to discover their classroom ransacked by unknown intruders. They were shocked at the destruction in the room and spent time discussing what might have happened and who would have wanted to invade it.

In the lesson that followed, Year 4 realised how much they valued their safety, friends and possessions. They applied their first hand reactions to their invasion when understanding how the Britons would have felt when they were repeatedly attacked by the Anglo Saxons.

By discussing the reasons behind the invasions, the children began to have a greater understanding of Anglo Saxons and the choices that they had to make to ensure that the things they valued were kept safe and protected as well.
