Autumn 1 Week 5 – History

Stars of the Week: Amelia and Charles

This week in History, Class 4 have been studying the reign of King Ethelred II ‘The Unready’. The children couldn’t believe he was only 7 years old when he became king (which meant he would have been in Class 3!)
Class 4 discussed how King Ethelred II was the first king to create an official agreement with the Vikings. He agreed to pay them Danegeld in order to stop their attacks. The Vikings stopped their attacks until they realised that this was a very lucrative agreement!

Class 4 created some fact-files on Danegeld and discussed if this was a good decision or not.

Great work Class 4!
