An Anglo-Saxon Village

Today we learnt about why the Saxons established their own villages. We found out that villagers who lived in the villages had established their own jobs, for example: clearing and ploughing the ground, grinding flour and making bread, and growing crops and tending to livestock.

We designed our own Saxon village.

How, what and why questions

Today in literacy we have been asking how, what and why questions about artefacts that were discovered in the Saxon times.
