Anglo Saxon Living History Day
Eagle Owls were able to come into school dressed as Anglo Saxons for a living history day. We learnt about different foods that they would have eaten, and in groups made food following Anglo Saxon recipes. We enjoyed: Mushroom Soup, Honey and Oat bread, Honey shortbread and Chicken stew and Oat cakes. The children had a feast in the afternoon and were able to try each dish, washed down with a selection of Anglo Saxon drinks such as Ale, Cider or Elderflower water. Pupils also had a go at weaving and made a model roundhouse from early Anglo Saxon days. They used the Runes that they had learnt about during lockdown and sent messages to each other.
