Visiting the Anglo Saxons!  


Da Vinci group went to West Stow Saxon village last week and had a great time learning about how people lived in those times.  2014-10-21 11.47.36


The houses were smaller than our houses, and were made of wood with straw roofs, and their beds were very hard!  They made their clothes out of sheep wool using a loom – they were itchy!
