All about our topic
“The Scottish Wars of Independence”
It was a historical topic where we learned about different wars that the people of Scotland endured in order to gain independence. We learned about some very influencial characters like William Wallace, John Balliol, Henry De Bohem, Alexander III, Edward I, Edward II and of course Robert the Bruce.
We researched and we discovered William Wallace is reported to have screamed ‘Freedom’ before meeting his end. We learned about William Wallace’s successes in battle and that he often won battles, although outnumbered, by using guerrilla warfare and tactics such a schiltrons to protect themselves from the enemy.
In response to finding out about how Wallace died we learned about the internal organs of the body.
