The British Conversion to Christianity (425-792AD)
Our nation is shaped in many ways by its Christian heritage. The arrival of Christianity to these shores through a combination of religious devotion and political expediency makes an interesting topic of study. This unit of work allows teacher to select between 2-4 hours of teaching/activities according to the needs of the children. This pack allows you to deliver part of the KS2 History Curriculum 2014 as part of topic on Anglo Saxons 425-792AD.

In this activity children will:

1. discover the Christian legacy left by the Romans and how the arrival of the pagan Anglo-Saxons changed this

2. learn the stories of the monks who brought Celtic and Roman Christianity to Britain and chart progress using a coloured map

3. review examples and then design their own early Saxon cross

4. create a model of a Celtic 'preaching cross'.
