The Anglo-Saxons Lessons Pack contains a complete 10-lesson history unit of work for Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11), with detailed lesson plans, Powerpoint slides, teacher guides and printable activity sheets.

Anglo-Saxon Pack


> 10 lesson Powerpoint files
> 10 detailed lesson plans
> Teachers' notes, including curriculum coverage
> Pupil activity sheets for all lessons

The ten sessions in this unit aim to give an overview of the significant people and events during the Anglo-Saxon period in Britain and to highlight some of the major changes during this period. The unit explores the broader historical themes of invading and settling before a time when Britain was unified under a single monarch. The lessons also explore the impact of the spread of Christianity on wider culture, including the transformation of writing.


As with all of our KS2History units, there is an emphasis on allowing pupils to consider the sources of evidence that form our understanding of this period of British history.
