History time travel…

Our first week back saw the year 4’s time travel back to the Anglo-saxon times with a trip to Winchester, ancient capital of Wessex. Events of the day included:

Handling artefacts as an archeologist:

Examining and digging for artefacts:

Exploring Winchester Cathedral for Saxon evidence and finding mortuary chests that contain the bones of Anglo-Saxon Royalty:

and listening to the legend of the St Swithun:

The children enjoyed many more activities linked to the Anglo-Saxons and before returning to 2019 discovered an familiar face that had enjoyed some time travel too.

Have a lovely weekend.

Happy Easter

We have given the children a list of creative tasks for the Anglo Saxons/Vikings that they can do over the holidays. If they have another history project in mind then they are welcome to bring in for the first week back after the holidays.
We hope you have a lovely break.
