We have just completed a den building area in our woodland walk and are looking forward to the warmer
weather so that the children can make good use of our lovely grounds. Pond dipping is underway in a few
classrooms and the gardening club are busy planting. Even the chickens are happier and seem to be laying
more eggs now that Spring is finally here.
The Year 5/6 children enjoyed a visit to an Anglo Saxon Farm in West Stowe last week. Max Faulkner
wrote a report on their visit.
On Thursday 18th April we went on an exciting trip to West Stow Anglo Saxon Village. We went
on this trip because we have been learning about farming.
Year 5 and 6 had to be at school for 8 am for it was a two hour journey to West Stow. I
was partnered with Molly Whitehead, there and back we played fun games with everybody. When
we first got there we went into the museum, it was amazing how many things they found. It was
so interesting touching and seeing all of the old and worn out artefacts they had preserved. I never
realized how many things the Anglo Saxons invented.
Soon after we looked at all the museum we had our lunch out on the picnic benches. After
everyone had finished lunch we went on the lovely park still on the site. It was such an
imaginative park it had great slides, climbing walls and swings but I found sand in weird places.
Next we went to the educational centre to learn a bit more about the village. I learnt that two huts
burnt down in Anglo Saxon times. Later on we went to see the huts. They were all very interesting
and different from each other because the historians had experimented with which hut would be
most likely to be built in those times. We went into every hut and looked at them, apart from one
which was so old we could only peer in it.
The whole day was really fun and I enjoyed it a lot, it was factual yet fun. I would recommend
West Stow Anglo Saxon Village to all ages.
