Anglo-Saxon rag dolls

During the Anglo-Saxon times children played with homemade toys. 

First we began by researching the type of toys children would have made and played with. Lots of the toys were made out of carved wood or stone, and we were able to look at artefacts of mini wooden figures, horses, ships and swords.  

Children also used rags - leftover pieces of wool and cloth used for clothing to make rag dolls.

Group 4 learners had a go of making their own rag dolls during their humanities' lesson today.

Lilly describes the process: "You get lots of scraps of material and tie them all together to make a doll. It was really fun."
