By the end of Year 4, most children should:
- show their developing understanding of chronology by using dates to place events, people and features of particular eras on a timeline;
- begin to give a few reasons for, and results of, the main events and changes studied;
- identify some of the different ways in which the past is represented and interpreted;
- use research skills to answer questions and give some valid reasons to substantiate answers; and
- be given the opportunity to learn about The Roman Empire and its impact on Britain, Britain’s settlement by Anglo-Saxons and Scots, as well as the Viking and Anglo- Saxon struggle for the Kingdom of England to the time of Edward the Confessor.
