Our New School Library

We have recently had a wonderful new library designed and created in school. Beautiful new furniture and books have been added and our friends, the artists Sunny and Pea created an amazing mural of our favourite characters. We had an exclusive official opening party with a group of children who have been using the library each week on a reading project with Norwich City Football Club Community Sports Foundation. We love reading!

Earlhams secret treasure.

How we found the treasure.

First we flew in our helicopter around until we saw deep lines they were in a shape of a boat! Next we came down and we started to excavate a little bit in the middle, but we had to lightly dig then we saw runes. It read “Do not touch a curse is coming!” the archaeologists were thinking it was a trick to not find secrets. However, our team had to talk to the lawyer of the land owner and convince him to excavate lots more. It took a long time but he said… “Yes”.

What we found

We found

  • shields
  • helmet
  • spear
  • golden chest
  • coffin

why this is important

Firstly it teaches us about Anglo Saxons life because it has fingerprints on which tells us what their job was.

Secondly some artefacts are incredibly valuable such as shields, helmets, spears, golden chest and a coffin.

Thirdly one body was in the coffin was rotten. The group opened then they were very surprised that a letter read I’m the treasure. The archaeologists showed the man what they found and he was delighted because they had found the god’s body. He was happy and they had a reward of supplies for their travels!

Boys learned the skills of their fathers. They learned to chop down trees with an axe, plough a field, and use a spear in battle. They also fished and went hunting with other men from the village.

Who were the Anglo Saxons

The last Roman soldiers left Britain in 410. New people came in ships across the North Sea – the Anglo-Saxons. The Anglo-Saxon age in Britain was from around AD410 to AD1066.

They were a mix of tribes from Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands. The three biggest were the Angles, the Saxons and the Jutes. The land they settled in was ‘Angle-land’, or England.

If we use the modern names for the countries they came from, the Saxons were German-Dutch, the Angles were southern Danish, and the Jutes were northern Danish.

The rare Anglo Saxons treasure of

How we found it.

First we were in a plane flying around the hillside. Next we saw a big lump: Keiran skydived to the lump. Luke, me, Calvin, Kale and Ashton went down Luke dug it up we went back. There was a strange man that was angry! at us? because we dug his place up. So we had to negotiate to his lawyer. I offered him £100m but he refused and said he was going to call the police. He said I will want a ticket to a football match at Old trafford so then we agreed. The man said he will come back in later on. The client accepted. So then we got away with it.

What we found.

  • We found a shield
  • We found brooches
  • We found bow an arrows

Why is this important?

It’s important because it’s an Anglo Saxon who is buried in it and he was a famous man, so the museum are going to want to investigate to see if it really old.

Rare Anglo Saxon Treasures of Earlham.

How we found the treasure:

First my team and I flew in a helicopter – we were searching for a few hours until one of our amazing gadgets discovered something brilliant. Next my awesome pilot, Maddie, parked us on a field in the middle of nowhere but luckily she parked right next to the spot were our gadget found this mysterious thing in the ground.

After that we ran out of our helicopter, my team and I started to excavate but a few hours past and we took out our sleeping bags and slept.

Finally, at 3:00 am, we woke up and started to excavate. 5 hours later we found what it was…

…it was a 20 meter boat!

What we found:

My team and I found: a dagger, 2 bodyies, a sword, a spear, a purse, hanging bowls, a shield, jewelry, coins, salt, 2 sceptres, a brooch, helmet, some Anglo saxon clothes and shoes, coins and 2 belt buckles. The bodies were a girl and a boy who were very important in Anglo saxon times.

Why is it important:

Firstly it teaches us about Anglo Saxon life because we know what it was like and it teaches us about what it was like being an Anglo Saxon.

Secondly, some of the artefacts are incredibly valuable, probably the most valuable things would probably be both of the sceptres, the brooches and the 2 belt buckles and the jewelry.

Finally the 2 bodies were 2 earls: one was a boy and the other one was a girl. The boy was called Alfred and the girl was called Edith.

Tristan-school vision day

On Monday 7th of June we went to the allotment. I could not believe my eyes there was other people helping at the allotment they were being kind to the world by watering plants and growing vegetables like radishes and potatoes. What should we grow at the allotment next?

We also made bird feeders by using a pinecone which we then covered with bird food and tied string to it. I brought 1 home and gave 3 to the reception and nursery children. We were kind to others as we gave some of our bird feeders to other people.

We did outdoor reading under a tree and connecting with nature. I was kind by being kind to myself and to our world by going outside and connecting with nature. What should i read next?
