On Wednesday 15th a real life Anglo Saxon woman came and visited our school! She taught us lots of interesting things about the Anglo Saxons and let us pretend to be Anglo Saxons for the day! We got to practise writing our names with a quill and create the front cover of the Anglo Saxon Chronicles using illuminated letters. We were also able to make our own ink using a pestle and mortar. In the afternoon, we tried on Saxon armour and made miniature battleaxes. We also got to play traditional Anglo Saxon games and take part in life on an Anglo Saxon farm.
