Year 4 Stay and Learn, 2.15pm

We are very much hoping that you will be able to join us for part of our day on Thursday 30th November from 2.15-3.15pm for our Year 4 Stay and Learn. We intend to showcase the Celt, Roman and Saxon work the children have been working on this term.

During the Stay and Learn the children will be able to show you their work and help you sample some Anglo Saxon cuisine. They will be sewing their Anglo Saxon purses, so your help with threading needles will also be grateful received!

To add to the day, it would be brilliant if you could help your child get into character for the day by providing a simple Anglo Saxon costume for them to dress in. Some examples of typical clothes are attached to this letter.  Please don’t worry if you don’t have much time or don’t have anything suitable. Anglo Saxon clothes were very simple and costumes can be too. Boys would have worn a tunic but simple loose trousers with a brown/grey t-shirt and a wide belt would be great or leggings and a shawl.

If you have any questions please pop in and see one of us.

We look forward to sharing our learning with you on Thursday 30th November.

Many thanks,

Ms Patterson, Mrs Thompson, Miss Bush and Miss Jessopp – The Year 4 Team
