Invaders and Settlers

Today, we started our new History topic; Invaders and Settlers; The Romans. 

We began by thinking about why people may move house, town, city or even to a new country. We discovered that people move to new places for lots of different reasons and have been doing so for thousands of years. 

In the past, many different people from many different places came to Britain. Two of the words we use to describe these people are:


Invaders are people who use force to enter a place and take over, usually with an army.
Settlers are people who go to live in a place with the aim of staying there permanently. 
In our lesson, we grouped different words depending on whether we thought they best-described invaders or settlers.
