This half term, we have been learning about the life of the Anglo-Saxons. We were even lucky enough to have an expert visit us!
We had a day out of school uniform, where we got to dress up as Anglo-Saxons experiencing what life was like back in the 5th Century.
We learned how to play a lute and tie our hair like a Saxon lady.
We looked at and got to touch lots of exciting artefacts.
We ground corn to make flour - it took 1-2 hours to grind enough flour to make a loaf of bread. The grind stone was really heavy and it took at least 2 of us to move it! Sorry for the mess we made Mrs Simpson.
When we tried on the Saxon armour, furs and carried the weapons, we realised how heavy they were!
