Year 5 Anglo-Saxon Day

Year 5 Anglo-Saxon Day (Mrs Pollard)

Posted Thursday, 16th January

Yesterday, the children and staff in year 5 experienced a day as Anglo-Saxons, presented by Gripping History. The children learned about invasion and settlement in Britain during Anglo-Saxon times. They experienced an archeological find from the time period, as well as looking at how trade worked and how to write using a quill and the Anglo-Saxon alphabet. The day ended with a discussion about weapons and a battle on the playground.
