Anglo Saxon Visitor!

This afternoon, we had a very special visitor in Year 4. His name was Wuffa (pronounced Oova) and he told us that he was a Saxon King! He was dressed as a Saxon, wearing simple leather shoes, leg protectors, breeches and two tunics. Wuffa brought in a range of Saxon objects to show us, including weapons, sheepskins, a glass cup and chain mail. We asked him many questions including; ‘How did Saxons’ clean their teeth?’ (With water) and ‘How big was the average village?’ (Usually, villages had around 25 people). We were then allowed to hold and try on the objects Wuffa had brought and ask more questions.

We really enjoyed meeting our Anglo- Saxon visitor!
