To kick off our first learning experience of the year, the children will discover when the Anglo-Saxon era happened and what happened in England before and after this era. We will have an exciting workshop that will enable the children to explore real Anglo-Saxon artefacts and reenact significant events that made the Anglo-Saxon era so savage! The children will find out where Anglo-Saxon settlements were and what they would have looked like, as well as having the opportunity to research what daily life was like during this period. We will even get find out all about brutal punishments inflicted on those who broke laws and how the Anglo-Saxons developed their warfare strategies throughout their reign! To end our experience, the children will create a short news broadcast, reporting on events they have learned so much about.
We took part in a workshop day! We dressed up as Anglo- Saxons, learnt about artefacts, runes and key events of the era. We learnt that the Romans fled England and returned to Rome shortly before the Picts and Scots began to attack. The Anglo- Saxons lived in England for hundreds of years before the Vikings eventually took over.
We looked at where the Anglo- Saxons came from and where they settled.
We learnt about Anglo- Saxon weapons and how they used them to fight.
We learnt about how the Anglo- Saxons lived, how they built their houses and what livestock they kept for food and resources.
After learning about Anglo- Saxon villages we created our own using natural resources!
