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.

*Workshop redeveloped for Spring 2021*

Costumed interpreters will engage with your group to bring different aspects of the Anglo-Saxon era to life.  Children will make silver brooches using metal sheeting and a small stylus which can be taken home with them. They will decipher runes and write their name in runic symbols on a clay tablet which can be taken away with you. The children will also have the opportunity to explore the games played by Anglo-Saxon families including Nine Mens Morris and Fox and Geese. The class will create woven fabric using a peg loom, this fabric can be taken back to school. 

You may like to pair this workshop with our Viking Workshop (new for 2021) or our Archaeological Dig workshop.
