Anglo-Saxon day at Delamere Academy

History came alive at Delamere CofE Academy this week when the children took part in an Anglo-Saxon day.

Pupils learned all about what it would like to live in Anglo Saxon times and experienced first-hand how a village would have to work together for the greater good by each contributing to a lunchtime hog roast feast. Pickmere class enjoyed picking, washing, peeling, chopping and cooking apples from the apple trees in the school grounds to make a delicious apple sauce. Year 6 made a delicious leek and potato soup, Year 4 made stuffing and Year 3 made oat cookies.

Fuelled by their fabulous meal, it was time for a ‘battle of the villages’ when everyone got into fantastically fierce mode to fight it out for their homestead!
