Anglo- Saxons

The children in Millstone Class have been hard at work, both at home and in school, designing and making Anglo-Saxon houses.

From our models you can see what Anglo-Saxon houses were like.

Anglo-Saxon houses were rectangular huts made of wood with roofs thatched with straw. Each family house had one room, with a hearth with a fire for: cooking, heating and light. Everyone in the family shared this one room. Poorer families shared their huts with animals divided from them by a screen. During the winter the animal’s body heat helped keep the hut warm. The houses were built facing the sun to get as much heat and light as possible.

 

Spring 2021 Wellbeing Session  - Natural Art and Sculpture

Andy Goldsworthy is a British artist. He is known for his work in sculpture and photography. Andy is an environmentalist and this is reflected in the nature-based aspect of much of his work. We used Andy Goldsworthy as our inspiration to work together to create our own 'shared' sculptures 'working with nature as a whole'. We are proud of our creations!
