Summer - Invasion

This project teaches children about life in Britain after the Roman withdrawal. Children will learn about Anglo-Saxon and Viking invasions up to the Norman conquest. Children will also learn about the growth and decline of the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire.  They will discover the absolute power of the Roman emperors and they will study the hierarchies of Roman society and the Roman army.  The children will study the first invasions of Britain in 55 and 54 BC and the Roman conquest of Britain in AD 43. They will learn about Boudicca’s rebellion, Hadrian’s Wall and the Romanisation of Britain, including how Christianity came to Britain and they will investigate the legacy of Roman Britain.
