There were focuses on the Saxons as both invaders – with their swords, shields and battle tactics – and as settlers, as the children built fences, learnt Saxon games and found out about how they lived and what they wore (which included dressing up Mr Miles). In class, the children are developing their writing using the dramatic story of Beowulf.

They learnt about shield design and proved they could behave with respect. They also dressed up wonderfully... big thanks to the Year 2 parents and carers! We all really enjoyed the day, and when asked if they thought other children would enjoy Squire Day when they are in Year 2, the Year 2 children replied "Oh yes, definitely!"
  • Tuesday 18 January 2022 Year 3 Stone Age Day Leopards and Tigers had a workshop day today, building on the work they have been doing in school this term.

The children also examined artefacts, looking for clues as to who they might have belonged to and what they would have been used for and identified animals from their skulls and skin.
