Year 4 Ignite – The Saxons

Year 4 IGNITE

On Monday we had our Year4 Ignite – Can you guess what we are dressed up as?

A Saxon came in to teach us about life in Saxon times. We learnt lots about the weapons and armour. Did you know that it could take a year to make a sword?

Saxons were great story teller; he told us the amazing story of Beowulf.

The Saxons spoke in Old English. We had a lesson in Old English and were very good at translating Old English to Modern English- we got to level 3!

During the afternoon we learnt about Alfred the Great and the Battle of Hastings.

It was a fantastic day and we all learnt a lot.
