Despite Storm Eleanor blowing a gale, Year 4 very enthusiastically went outside to find out what children did for fun nearly a thousand years ago. They were absolutely brilliant. They all had a go and worked to the best of their ability and the coaches were really impressed.
This morning, we found out what made up a healthy plate of food and where ingredients that would make up a Pottage Stew might have grown or be hunted in the year of 1066. We then safely prepared our vegetables and cooked them in a large pot for 1 hour.
Year 4, don’t forget to come dressed as a Norman tomorrow, wearing or bringing suitable shoes for outdoor playtimes and activities, and bring your containers for your authentic Pottage Stew.
Tomorrow, Year 4 are going to play Quick Sticks hockey. Please can all Year 4’s bring a water bottle and their outdoor PE Kit. This should include trainers and jogging bottoms. If your child owns a pair of shin pads can these also be brought in too.
Look back tomorrow too see how we got on at the Quick Stick Hockey event.
What a fantastic introduction to the Anglo Saxons! Year four was introduced to who the Anglo Saxons were, why they came to Britain and what they did here. They were also shown some extremely fragile artefacts and replicas to observe and study.
Year four, please write in the comments about this workshop. What did you learn? Did anything surprise you? What were the artefacts and described what they looked liked.
