Anglo-Saxon Museum Visit

Friday 12th February | 3 comments

On the 11th February, year 5 went to Leeds City Museum to learn all about the Anglo-Saxons. They used the museum gallery and were even lucky enough to handle genuine 1400 year old Saxon coins.


In the afternoon, the children explored the museum galleries and used their reading skills to answer a series of questions about various civilizations through history including the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and other people that have occupied Leeds through history.


The children behaved wonderfully and were a credit to the school. Several members of the museum staff and public commented on this. They were truly great learners and Miss Levett and Mr Tiffany enjoyed watching them work independently and cooperatively to answer some challenging inferential questions.


Oh, and the dressing up! The less said about that the better!


I wonder what the children will say they enjoyed most?

What they learned from the day?

    It was a pleasure to join the class for the trip to the museum. We had a wonderful day and all learnt lots of interesting facts about the Anglo-Saxons. My favourite part of the day was handling the Anglo-Saxon coins.
