In Spring, we took a trip to Butser Ancient Farm to learn all about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings. It was a great (albeit very cold) day out. Butser Ancient Farm is one of the most interesting archaeological sites in the UK (they told us so!) and it also has a real working farm where we can explore the ancient world and look at the gorgeous little piglets too! The views and surrounding scenery were beautiful to look at which was an added bonus.

During the day, we experienced what life would have been like during Anglo-Saxon and Viking times. We took part in activities such as spinning, chalk carving, jewellery making and fence-weaving. These ‘day-to-day’ Anglo-Saxon tasks were harder than we initially thought and, with the weather being so cold, were rather tricky BUT, we persevered and succeeded!

We were all very tired on the journey home
