We had a fabulous time learning about the Anglo-Saxons today! We learnt about their weapons, artefacts and burials. We were able to try some shield formations and some Anglo-Saxon games. 

Viking Day


We had a great time today, learning about the Vikings! We looked at their weapons, long ships, and why Anglo-Saxon Burhs were such as safe place to live. 

Making Viking Bread


We followed an ancient recipe to make bread in the style of the Vikings! 

Rock Steady 


We had a great time in assembly today! We enjoyed trying the instruments, including electric drums, guitars and keyboards.

We had a fun time visiting the museum! We learnt about ancient houses and clothes. 

Selborne Field Studies Centre


We had a great time looking at a river as part of our Geography lessons. We spent time looking at a meander and taking measurements. We investigated the animals that live in the river and even caught some fish!
