Autumn 1

Welcome to Year 6!


At Avenue Primary, we learn about a different topic every half term. These topics are called ‘drivers’ and revolve around a main question, which links specifically to Science, History or Geography.


For this half term, we have a History driver and our question to investigate is…



Within this history driver, children are going to learn about who were the Vikings and the Anglo-Saxons and their struggle for the Kingdom of England to the time of Edward the Confessor (AD793-AD1042). They are going to find similarities and differences between the ways these people lived, Viking raids and the battle of Lindesfarne and the adventures of Erik the Red. They are going learn about the Anglo-Saxon system of laws and justice, Heptarchy and Danegeld.


Here is an outline of the other curriculum areas we will be covering this term:
