Living workshop came to our school and we had an immersive Saxon day. We wore Saxon clothes, has Saxon tattoos and practised all sorts of Saxon activities.
We did weaving, making clay pots we even tried our hand at using quills to make illuminated letters
We practised Saxon battle cries and fighting strategies
Step- shield- up into the belly
Step- shield- get them in the head
our tribes were name throat cutters and blood thirsty.
We used a metre stick to draw lines in chalk on the playground.
We had to make sure we started at the right place and our metre sticks were round the right way
Our partners had to measure the lines we had draw and then write how many cm long our lines were.
This term in topic maths we will be learning all about linear measurements and the ‘PERIMETERS’ of shapes.
We have read the amazing story of the swords in the stone, we acted scenes from the story
This term we are leaning about invaders; the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings then we looked at our new timeline in school to help us understand just how long ago this was 440 years after Jesus was born (440 AD).
