Anglo-Saxons

Pupil Voice!

 

Can you tell me something about your history learning this term?

“King Vortigern asked Hengest and Horsa for help with fighting the Scots and Picts. But then he couldn’t pay them so they killed him!”

“Their spears had the names of the Gods written on them in their special writing…runes!”

“Anglo-Saxons were divided into 3 tribes at first- the Angles, Saxons and Jutes.”

 

Do you know what any of this vocabulary means?

“Angles was one of their tribes.”

“I think Cyning means king.”

“Bretwalda is a chief or king of Britain.”

 

 

What different things can we use to learn about people/events from the past?

How trustworthy are these sources?

“We could look at things from the past. The ones we looked at our workshop were copies so we can’t always trust them.”

“Search the internet! Some of the stuff isn’t always true though because anyone can put stuff on the internet.”

“Artefacts! You’d be best off digging them up from the ground though”
