During this project, the children will explore as historians Britain’s settlement by Anglo-Saxons and Scots including lookin at their own locality. We know that situated only one train stop away from Malvern Link is the city of Worcester, which is the closest city to Malvern. Throughout Worcester’s history it has been home to many different settlers including Roman, and Anglo-Saxon. The Saxons had started a new settlement by a ford in the River Severn. The Saxons called a Roman settlement a ceaster. They called this one Weogoran ceaster. Weorgoran means people of the winding river. In time the name changed to Worcester. As Artisits, the children will become proficient drawers by looking at the local work of Gilly Hancock and producing work inspired by the Viking era. They will become proficient at drawing using square-scale technique. They will also work as sculptors, looking at local sculptures and becoming proficient in sculpting techniques and make a Viking pendant.
