 Children and staff in year 4 came dressed in traditional Anglo- Saxons clothing.The children took part in a number of activities, as an introduction to the topic of Anglo-Saxons.They made clay pots, wrote their name and secret messages in 'runes', looked at artefacts and sketched them, they also worked in pairs to create their own Celtic style cross and they worked as a group to become 'archaeologists' and try to put pieces of a puzzle together. Here are some pictures of our activities that we did!

We will be sending a times-table poster home this week. It would be great if this poster could be put up somewhere at home so the children can practice everyday.

Here is a fun times-table poster to help you learn your times-tables at home!
