What a wonderful trip we had to Bishops Wood this week. We explored how the Anglo-Saxons arrived in Britain as we rowed across the North Sea. We experienced the lifestyle within an Anglo-Saxon village and also tried pottery, spinning wool and hammering copper. We worked together to build an Anglo-Saxon shelter in the woods.
Conor (class 12): When we were building the shelters, I felt like an Anglo-Saxon because we were out in the wilderness. I loved it!
Amelia (class 12): We had a fun experience. I really liked being a potter because it allowed me to be creative as well as making something useful.
Cody (class 13): My favourite part was when we made a broach because I’ve never made one and got to use a hammer to make it.
Anna (class 13): My favourite part was when we got to look into the replica of an Anglo-Saxon long house because it was set out exactly the way it would have been about 1000 years ago.
