Our Anglo-Saxon Experience!

Today, we had a fabulous time taking part in an Anglo Saxon workshop. First of all, we started by being introduced to Anglo Saxon names and jobs. We created our own names and chose jobs we would like to have many many years ago! What was your Anglo Saxon name?

After that, we started looking at different artefacts that had been found including a helmet found at Sutton Hoo. We had a great time passing them round and looking at what they were. We discussed home life from the Anglo Saxon times and looked at the different clothes they wore.

After playtime, we were introduced to a game that they used to play where they fought over a stick. It was called stick wrestling. It was great fun, we cheered our friends on when they were competing.

In the afternoon, we looked at the armour the Anglo Saxons would of worn and even took part in a battle. It was a brilliant day! What was your favourite part?

Poetry day!

This week, Miss King’s literacy group have been learning the poem ‘On the beach’. We got into groups and we each got given a verse to learn together. We then looked at how we could improve our performance by adding props and actions. Our verses became a lot more exciting after we had added this. We then looked at how we could improve our voices by adding expression and intonation to make it even more exciting. This afternoon, we performed our poems to the rest of Year 5 and 6!

What did you like about our poem?
