On Wednesday 20th October, Year 3 were surprised to receive a visit from a time-traveller. Coincidentally, this time-traveller had come from the year AD1040 and was an Anglo-Saxon – how strange as that is who we have been learning about during this term!
Our Anglo-Saxon visitor brought lots of things with him from the past. He taught the children about Anglo-Saxon tools, battle garments and weapons, food and clothing. Fortunately, he could speak very good modern English and was able to understand all their questions!
Our fabulous finish ended with a re-enactment of an Anglo-Saxon shield wall. The children used their shields, interlocked to protect themselves and charged the (imaginary) enemy.
