Year 3 and 4 at Chiltern Open Air Museum

On Wednesday 11th October, Year 3 and 4 went to Chiltern Open Air Museum to take part in workshops based on their learning in History. 


In the morning, Year 3 took part in a Stone Age workshop in which they built fires, made bracelets and built a shelter. At the same time, Year 4 took part in an Anglo-Saxon workshop lead by Anna the Anglo-Saxon. We learnt how to thatch a roof, translate some Latin, play Anglo-Saxon games and wrote in runes. We also made brooches and were able to try on an Anglo-Saxon helmet and hold a shield. Year 4 felt like real Anglo-Saxon Warriors. 


In the afternoon, Year 3 took part in an archaeological dig (they had to excavate poo!) and Year 4 made bricks and rag rugs. 


All the children and the adults had a fantastic day. 


Adyan -  "I liked the trip because I was able to play the Earl in the Anglo-Saxon workshop and I enjoyed making the brooches."


Gravinia - "I enjoyed making the bricks." 


Kirsten - "I liked that I got to do lots of different things to do with the Anglo-Saxons. I even did some more work on Latin and runes when I got home!" 

Welcome back everyone! Keep safe and stay alert! Happy 2022!
