Curriculum Overview


GLF Wider Curriculum

This term our GLF Wider Curriculum focus is art and we will be answering the question is ‘Can I create a piece of art based on a period of history? 

Children will deliver a presentation based on research using primary and secondary sources.  They will also create a Viking coin purse with a printed personalised monogram. 

During this, we will learn: 

  • How has Britain changed over time?  
  • What was life was like under Anglo-Saxon rule? 
  • What was life was like under Viking rule? 
  • The Anglo-Saxons were more powerful than the Vikings. Support or challenge? 
  • How is Britain a product of invasion? 
  • How were Viking coin purses constructed? 
  • Why were monograms important under Viking and Anglo-Saxon rule? 
  • How does printing change my image? 
  • What makes an effective print? 
  • All stitches look the same: support or challenge? 
  • What is the purpose of a pattern within textiles? 
  • How can I use different joining techniques to create a coin purse? 

To help with our Wider Curriculum learning, we would like to ask for a voluntary contribution of £2 per child to help us fund our exciting project. Donations can be made via parent pay.
