Our topic this term is 'Defend and attack!'
This term we are learning about the battle of Hastings in 1066 and the Bayeux tapestry. The four candidates that were fighting for the throne, were: Harold Godwinson, William La Batard, Harald Hardrada and Edgar the Atheling. They were all fierce except Edgar who was a sick teenager and didn't have ruling experience. However, Hardrada and William were foreign and wouldn't mix well with the British townsfolk.
In history we wrote a newspaper report on the battle of Hastings and pretended to play the battle scene. We then did an explanation piece of writing of the characters. We have spent a lot of time learning about the Normans,Vikings and Saxons, we have done research on the computers and found infomation in books. We have learned a lot from the Normans and the Saxons. The Normans won the battle of Hastings and ruled England for a short amount of time.
