Visiting A Saxon Home

Thank you to all the adults who supported us on our trip today. It was so successful also because you were all so respectful, collaborative and helpful.

We met a Saxon woman who seemed very lost and unfortunately had her cooking pot broken by her energetic four-year-old, Olaf.

The children came to the rescue by travelling in time and helping her find her home in Londonburg. They also all made pots with the help of Claire the artist to replace the one she had broken.

Hilda invited us into her house, showing us where she sleeps, cooks and keeps her meat. She also told us what her house was built of, mostly, wood, woven willow branches, straw and even cow dung and mud. Ardell asked if she had a tv. When Beau explained it sort of tells us stoies Hilda decided to tell us one of her stories. She also showed us one of the combs her father made from a bone.

Well done to all the children who as always made wonderful comments during the workshops and demonstrated excellent behaviour in the museum and travelling to and from the museum.
