Year 5 had a very special visitor last week! They got to meet an Anglo-Saxon warrior. Throughout the day, the warrior told the children why the Anglo -Saxons first came to Britain during the rule of the Romans, what they dressed like and why the Vikings came over.
They were able to carry out an Anglo-Saxon King’s burial and found out what they took with them to heaven, learnt how the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings both went into battle and their war chants.
Year 5 then learnt about the end of the Anglo-Saxon rule over Britain and how it came to an end through the Battle of Stamford Bridge against the Vikings and the Battle of Hastings against the Normans.
It was a truly enjoyable day, with the children all learning lots of new facts and information about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings.
