This term Year 5 are working closely with local historian Peter Daniel on a project exploring The Saxons in our local area. The topic includes collaboration with Tom HIllenbrand (animator), Carl Kears (Kings College, London) and the children at Holy Trinity Lamorbey C E Primary School (APAT).
The St Paulinus school field is at the top of Mount Nod, the legendary site of the Battle of Crecangford where stories say 4000 men were slain and buried under the hill.
Children will create an animated version of the Hengest legend. They will also stage a 'mock battle' at the St Paulinus summer fair with the children of Holy Trinity Lamorbey.
See full plans below.
