Anglo Saxon learning at Tatton Park
Date: 14th Jan 2017 @ 2:28pm
On Friday, children from Year 4 visited Tatton Park to learn about Anglo Saxon life. Activities during the day included:
1) Learning how Anglo Saxons and Vikings used to fight and the weapons they used;
2) Making flour using traditional techniques such threshing and grinding the wheat kernel with stone;
3) Learning how Anglo Saxons traded goods in exchange for other goods which would involve trading items that they made themselves;
4) Discussing how Anglo Saxons used animal products to make a variety of useful items such as blankets, daggers and spears.
Even though it was a very cold day, our children did fantastically well and learnt a lot about Anglo Saxon life. Please have a look at the photos from the trip.
