CHILDREN were fascinated to find out how people used to live hundreds of years ago.

Year 6 pupils at Darnhall Primary School have been studying Anglo-Saxon life and how they settled in Great Britain.

Children researched different styles of homes and discovered that families lived in just one room where they ate, cooked and slept.

Using simple school materials and natural resources, they worked on designs and measurements and constructed models of the homes.

Pupil Ethan Astbury said: "It was a challenging, yet a fun and exciting experience. We loved learning about Anglo-Saxons."

Teacher Hayden Baxendale said: "I have been so impressed with their designs and how they worked together to create such realistic houses."
