Anglo Saxon Drama
Through our class drama work we created our own Anglo-Saxon village in the classroom. Everybody had an important job in the running of the village. We planned how the village would look and what kinds of jobs the Anglo-Saxons would have done. Some of us even got dressed as Anglo Saxons (after first of all researching what they would have worn).
At the end of a long day working in and around the village all the villagers (children) meet in the Mead hall to discuss the day’s happenings. We really had fun pretending to be Anglo-Saxon!
