Welcome to our website. We hope you will find our site useful and easy to navigate.
To start off this term, our topic work will be focused on India. We will be looking specifically at how their culture is different to ours and how their way of living differs to life in Glenfield. We have got some interesting resources for you below if you wish to do some research and get a head start with your learning. There are a range of videos and also some websites with some great information.
Map of India: India is country that is made up of lots of smaller 'states'. These include some major cities and attractions in India. In fact, India is made up of 29 states altogether. The map below is divided into these sections:
The Anglo-Saxons were a group of farmer-warriors who lived in Britain over a thousand years ago. Made up of three tribes who came over from Europe, they were called the Angle, Saxon, and Jute tribes. The two largest were the Angle and Saxon, which is how we've come to know them as the Anglo-Saxons today.
As you can see from the map above, all three of the tribes arrived at different points in England from Europe. The collective name of all three tribes was The Anglo Saxons.
Sutton Hoo: Sutton Hoo is a place that is often talked about in relation to the Anglo Saxons. It is the location where many artefacts have been found by archaeologists. Some of the key findings include helmets, swords, shields and even a ship! The image shown below is a mound of soil at Sutton Hoo, under which the remains of an anglo Saxon ship were discovered.
