  • Have a go at some Anglo-Saxon games


  • Making a willow plate


This day is in Price Band 2.


Feedback for this day includes:


"It was an absolutely brilliant day and the children loved it.  Reinforced knowledge and the chance to undertake a variety of tasks that they wouldn't necessarily do at school. The willow plates were fantastic!"  Keinton Mandeville Primary School, October 2022
