Anglo-Saxon Morning in Years 5 and 6

Year 5 and 6 spent a wonderful morning with the Aldbourne Heritage Group, who brought their extensive knowledge and a range of exciting artefacts and activities to share with the children. We learnt about the origins of the name “Aldbourne”, as well as getting to handle replicas of various artefacts including weaponry, clothing and jewellery. Some new fashion trends possibly coming your way!

We also tried out some Anglo-Saxon crafts, making clay pots, brooches and bracelets. Some wonderful end products, Year 5 and 6!
