Anglo Saxons School Theme Day

Anglo Saxons school theme day

Our Anglo Saxons school theme day

Our Anglo Saxons school theme day has been developed in consultation with schools to ensure the best quality learning experience.  An Anglo Saxons theme day consists of one session introducing the Anglo Saxon era and one further session chosen by the class teacher.

Costumed interpreters will engage with your group to bring different aspects of the Anglo Saxon era to life.  Children will learn how to build as an Anglo-Saxon as well as reference how Anglo Saxons governed their kingdoms; they will learn how significant the written word became during this period and have the opportunity to practice writing with a feather quill and ink.  Children will leave this session with clay runes and a brooch based on real Anglo Saxon artifacts as found at Sutton Hoo, as well as a large, class collation of quill writing.

The Anglo Saxon period ended with the Battle of Hastings. Children will re-create the Battle of Hastings to discover why the Saxons lost.

One additional session can be chosen from the following

Iron Age Life
Archaeological Dig
Romans and Britons
