Y4’s Anglo Saxon Experience

Year 4 were treated to a really interesting afternoon, finding out about the Anglo Saxons. Mrs Ames, who would normally be teaching in the senior school, brought an array of artefacts for the children to examine. What was each object used for? What can artefacts from the past tell us about how people lived? What similarities are there with the objects we use today? Some items were easier to identify than others, with coins being the most similar. Mrs Ames encouraged a great level of conversation, and the children enjoyed putting their theories forwards.  The artefact box, on loan from Lancashire County library service, also contained two adult size Anglo Saxon costumes, Jonathon dressed as Anglo Saxon man, and Mrs Whitaker modelled the lady’s costume.


“I was really surprised to find out that something I thought was an Anglo Saxon fork was actually something that Anglo Saxon women wore on their belt to show they were in charge of a house. “ Mary.
“I was shocked at what they wore, I honestly thought that they wore less clothes and that they didn’t have shoes, it was very interesting.” Lisa.
“I loved dressing up as Anglo Saxon man, it was very comfy and I liked the shoes.” Jonathon.
