Year 3 enjoy a Saxon Workshop

10 March 2017

Year 3 enjoyed a Saxon Workshop on Wednesday of this week. 

They discovered that Saxon royalty were buried with their possessions and servants! They recreated the burial of a Saxon princess and learnt that the facts we know about Saxons often come from old burial sites.

They also learnt about being a Saxon warrior and enjoyed handling shields, spears, bows and arrows.

Studying Saxon artefacts also provided an insight into the life of Saxon women and how important they were in their society.
