We have been learning about the Anglo Saxons in our history lessons. Who were the Anglo Saxons? Why did they come to Britain?
We learnt that the Saxons had seven different kingdoms and labelled these on a map. Why did they have seven kingdoms?
Shields were used by Anglo Saxons and we designed our own using the internet to research different designs.
Saxons settled in villages. The house were made of wood and straw. We collected sticks and built our own model Saxon village. We had to work as a team just like the Saxons would have.
Here is our classroom display.
What have you learnt about how the Anglo Saxons lived? Do you think you could live as an Anglo Saxon? Why?
