After a lovely journey through roads lined with autumn colours, we arrived at the West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village in Suffolk. The trip proved perfect for Year 5 as we are studying the Anglo-Saxons as part of our History lessons.
Year 5 had the opportunity to investigate Anglo-Saxon life through original objects and using the archaeological clues to find out about the first English at West Stow.
“It was an interesting and exciting trip to experience life in Anglo-Saxon times.”
Emily D, Year 5
Throughout the day, Year 5 had time to:
- Explore experimental reconstructions of buildings
- Handle replica objects
- Study finds from the site in the Anglo-Saxon museum
- Take part in lively group led discussions led by staff about the Anglo-Saxons, encouraging groups to draw their own conclusions
A great trip was had by all, thank you.
“I loved the trip! It was like going back in time.”
Rosanna B, Year 5
“They told us interesting facts – it was fun.”
Henry O, Year 5
