Anglo-Saxon Experience Day!

What a fantastic day we've had being an Anglo-Saxon tribe! 

Our trip started with our tribe deciding we were going to move to Britain. We thought about what we would need to bring with us and got on a boat and rowed all the way to Britain.

When we got there we found a place to settle and learnt all about an Anglo-Saxon house. We then practised our defending skills with a shield, made amulets using copper wire and created clay thumb pots which we decorated with Anglo-Saxon runes using feathers. 

After lunch we went hunting in the woods and found quite a few animal tracks. We built our own dens in the wood and learnt how to make fire.
