Butser Farm

To support our learning in our topic 'Who were the best invaders: Vikings or Saxons?' we took a visit to Butser Farm. We had a great day and got to try a range of activities. We firstly crushed chalk for a clunch mixture which we put on a wall to make it nice and strong. We made cordage bracelets that we had to twist and add a bead to. After lunch, we were like archaeologists and went digging for artefacts that we had to guess which time period they were from. Lastly, we sewed Saxon Runes onto material. We had an amazing day and learnt so many new things!
