  8. On Thursday the 9th of October 2014 , Year 4 had a majestic Anglo Saxon day .In the beginning of the day, groups of children did an information text, which stored all are information. later on, we have created an amazing collage of an Saxon house. Some of us did weaving and it was very easy. However I struggled doing weaving. Next, we have swapped classes and we made a fantastic shield and we got to write our names on the shields in the Anglo Saxon alphabet. Turns out that there was no such thing as the letter z. Some of our shields were on the display. After that, we have made a delectable lough of bread. It was almost impossible to measure the exact amount of capacity to pour into the dough. However, later on the day it got rainy and we could not do gardening. In the afternoon, we took a class photograph of year 4s brilliant clothes. When we had to go home, we all tasted the delicious bread that we made covered with butter. To summarise, we all had a blast and everyone enjoyed Anglo Saxon day. I loved Anglo Saxon day. It was the best!
