The Battle of Hastings is an important historic event which marked the end of the Anglo-Saxon period. Make sure you have done your Guided Reading first before completing this activity, as it will give you a background of what happened.

The Bayeux Tapestry is a famous piece of art work, embroidered not long after the battle, which shows what happened. Watch the BBC Bitesize clip below which gives you more information about it. Then look underneath the link for your activity today.

The Bayeux Tapestry depicts the Battle of Hastings in scenes. I would like you to produce 4 different scenes of the Battle of Hastings. This can be done outside (outdoor learning opportunity) to show these scenes. You can use/make props to use, dress up, use members of your family etc, to show the battle - it's entirely up to you.

Challenge: Describe the soldier's feelings from the scenes you have created. What is going through their mind? What do you think they are thinking about? feeling?

Send your pictures into the class page - we would love to see them!
