12 Lesson Unit
Including all lessons and lesson activities.
In this unit, children are introduced to the idea that people from other societies have been coming to Britain for a long time. Children find out how Viking influence spread through different parts of the world and how, over a
period of years, the Vikings eventually settled in Britain.
Children will develop their understanding of chronology, describe and identify reasons for and results of historical events, situation and changes. As well as consider different ways in which the past can be interpreted.
