Woodhall Estate trip 30.06.21

Today we had an amazing trip to Woodhall Estate! We did a variety of activities organised by Countryside Learning. Starting with the sheep we found out that the British Empire became hugely successful on the back of sheep farming. After that we visited the apple orchard and found out about how apples are grown and cared for over a year. We had a game of  'apple or not an apple' where we tried to guess whether the funny names were actual names of apples or not - Tim was our genius in this! 

Next we planted broad bean seeds and found out about recycling.  After lunch we found out about arable farming and we liked feeling the different seeds and grains.  At the falconry display we met some different birds of prey and were surprised to learn that a Peregrine falcon can fly up to 60 miles and hour!!

We had a fantastic day, learned loads about the countryside and had a great time out in the fresh air!

An Anglo-Saxon Village

We have been finding out about Anglo-Saxon villages.  The chief of the village would have lived in a larger house in the centre of the village. This might also have been a meeting hall. The village would have been positioned near a water source. Woodland on the edge of the village ensured the people had a good supply of wood. Animals were kept in the fields by the village. Also, clay pots were fired on a large open fire.
