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!"
