Year Four came in fantastic costumes and had a day learning all about this period in our history as well as enriching our geography work on settlements. We spent the first part of the morning, learning about housing, and village life, and looked at how the country was divided into seven kingdoms, the early formation of what we now call our counties.
After this the children headed outside where they used our fabulous forest area to look at the best place to form a settlement. They had to consider access to water, trees and farming land. They then had to scavenge the forest area for branches and sticks to build a den. In the afternoon they created their own Anglo-Saxon brooch and on Friday they baked their own anglo-saxon honey bread. We are blessed with fantastic grounds and the children loved using them to enhance their learning in History and Geography.Previous
